This is the story of a young couple and their struggle to farm in Nebraska. Jemima is a spoiled young woman who eventually learns to be a good farm wife and partner to her husband, Seth. Seth learns of Jem's father's theft and is troubled by Jem's loyalty to her father. They have a serious communication problem which doesn't totally get resolved, though they are working towards it at the end of the book. There are many difficulties they must confront and a tragedy to deal with. There is a theme of Christianity and trust in God in the book. As another early reviewer pointed out, the Bible quote from which the title comes refers to a mother-in law's relationship with her daughter-in-law, and so was not quite a good one to use, though the author was trying to identify the wife's submission to her husband. This submission without any input was a part of the problem in the book. The content was appropriate for a teen audience. This was an Early Review book.
