A breath of fresh air. Aug 14, 2008
What a beautiful, meaningful, wonderful story! I gobbled this book up in 12 hours! We have two servicemen, brothers who come home from the war. One, Rodney, has been engaged with a spiteful woman. She returned the ring while he was overseas and married an older, richer man. However, when she finds out that the brothers are back, she does everything in her powers to see Rod. However, the family doesn't let that happen.
The other brother, Jeremy, is younger, but is glad that the brother isn't with the girl any more. Both of them have their faith strengthed overseas and bring back a powerful message. There are also two young ladies who begin to fall in love with the brothers.
Meantime, Jessica, the ex-fiance, is still scheming to see Rod. Her husband wants her to sneak into Rod's office and get an important paper.
Read this amazing, uplifting book and find out if the boys find true love, with God's guidance. Find out if Jessica gets Rod back or finds the important paper.
Don't read the other reviews because I have found they have a lot of spoilers!
great story, but similar to others Dec 21, 2001
I enjoyed this story, but it seems like Grace Livingston Hill used similar plots in many books - this was not the first story I read about a young man returning home from a war to be harassed by a nasty rich ex-girlfriend that won't take "no" for an answer. In the other books, however, nothing much happened to the ex-girlfriend (other than losing the man), while in this book the "bad" girl was properly punished at the end (sent to jail), and the "nice" girl married the ex-soldier at the end of the story.
A Book Worthy of Reading Jul 6, 2000
Rodney comes home from the war firm in his beliefs as a Christian. But sent to try him is his old girlfriend Jessica. After proposing to her and being denied for an old, rich man, Rodney had pawned the ring and opened his eyes. The girl was not a believer of God and his mother never had approved of her. But through his brother's friend, he meets Diana. She also didn't know the Lord, but was willing to learn. After a prayer directed at her, she discovered that God really did love her. Throughout the story, Jessica is determined to somehow spoil things for Rodney. But her plans backfire and she ends up in jail. But Rodney and Diana find love and happiness at the end of a firey trial.
