He told her of the preacher he had secured that afternoon by telephone—a plain, kindly man who had been recommended by the undertaker. She thanked him again, apathetically, as if she had not the heart to feel anything keenly, but was grateful to him as could be.

"Have you had anything to eat to-day?" he asked, suddenly.

She shook her head. "I could not eat! It would choke me!"

"But you must eat, you know," he said, gently, as if she were a little child. "You cannot bear all this. You will break down."

This is a very different GLH story. There are obvious parallels with Paul and Stephen of the Bible, the romance that gets the most page time is a bad girl trying to seduce the good guy. Yet, I found to this book encouraging. This book is about a man who, imperfectly, walks with God after witnessing

Beautiful story. Beautiful picture of motherhood. The main character is a type of Paul from the new testament. There is a parallel throughout the story between the main character's and Paul's lives. One of my favorite things about this books is the mother that Paul comes to know and love.

Excellent story. A young man tries to understand the feeling he has of Christ’s Presence in his life after a serious brush with death, coupled with a sense of responsibility for the death of a heroic college classmate. He falls heavily for the wrong girl, even though she shuns his search for Truth.

I liked the strong faith element in this and the emphasis on the Holy Spirit's presence and leading. Didn't particularly like the fact that the romantic element was so focused on the wrong romance with so little attention given to the right one. The rose-colored glasses that everyone seemed to view

Although we all know old Gracey tends to be a bit of an exaggerator, syrupy sweet characters, terrible villains, I found this book to be a tad more on the mark. I found Jena to be exactly like several women I have met and the struggles that Paul faced made him very real to life and likeable.
