There are times when Mabel isn't too sure, despite the optimistic encouragement of her best friend, Sarah Jane. Cold stoves, scarlet fever, and a break-in at the schoolhouse are only part of her worries in her first year of teaching. How should she handle the threats of Cy Lawton, whose son comes to school bearing the marks of his father's anger? Or the gossip about her "setting her cap" for Leonard Williams, the young minister?^^Meanwhile, letters from her high school friend Russ keep coming, regular as clockwork, offering Mabel a comfortable, secure future as a banker's wife. Mabel thinks she is too young to be facing such important decisions even with God's help, but as Sarah Jane reminds her, "Life keeps moving on, whether you're ready or not." ^
These historical and humorous novels explore the spiritual and emotional challenges of growing up.
Gifted storyteller Arleta Richardson grew up an only child in Chicago, living in a hotel on the shores of Lake Michigan. Under the care of her maternal grandmother, she listened for hours as her grandmother told stories from her own childhood. With unusual recall, Arleta began to write these stories for an audience that now numbers over 2 million. "My grandmother would be amazed to know her stories have gone around the world," Arleta says.
