A challenging book to read in some ways, as the main characters in some ways the "perfect" Christians. It made me do some self-evaluation about my own life, which can be difficult in spite of being necessary and good. Another quick, simple, and enjoyable read.

I read this book way back in 1993/94, it took along time. But it was worth
the read!! Very good, I loved how the couple met, how he found her, and
how they got engaged was awesome!!! Loved the whole story!

I love how Corrie is growing up. This novel it's rich with history, intrigue, and relationship. I always enjoy her times of spiritual growth and discovery.

This was another very good book in this series. It followed the end of the Civil War, which held a lot of interest. Some of the book dragged a bit.

Read during the era of "whatever was on mom's shelf was allowed" and I recall liking them at the time. Not sure why now.

This book follows Corrie Belle Hollister as she grows into a woman of God and takes part in both the Civil War and President Lincoln's election.

Another great episode

I'm already searching for the next book... That should tell you enough to get you reading. This book was a little more repetitive than the others but I've still enjoyed the inspiration and the great story.
