HORACE WHEELER had stood up years before, in the little village church, and confessed Christ before men. He was then not much more than a boy, and had very indefinite notions as to what this step implied and involved. Indeed, he had been urged into it by his mother, whose delicate health made it probable that she would not live to see him safely through the perils of early youth, and who felt that she could die in peace if she could leave him in the sheltering bosom of the Church she loved.

On the contrary, he fell to generalizing in this style : " They're all alike, and I knew it, and yet have been and made a fool of myself. All they care for or think of is dress and show and fashion.

A wonderful, wonderful read!  May 19, 2008
This book is so wonderful. A welcome change from the fiction of today, yet still very readable. It will challenge your faith and encourage you. I highly recommend it!
Good  May 12, 2007
This book was not as good as Stepping Heavenward...a little bit more stereotypical with the characters, but still a good, light read using Biblical principles
a must for every woman  May 3, 1999
I read this book and am now ordering another copy so each of my girls will have one as they grow up. You will laugh, you will cry and you will be challenged in your walk with the Lord.
