Every time Sibyl visits her mother, she’s criticized, shamed, and leaves in tears. The only thing that can calm her is Fremont’s assurance to move them to a place they can share their faith more freely. While her emotions bounce from frustration to despair, she holds on to the belief that God can help her family.
Fremont, a former hobo, promises to find a better paying job and spirit his wife away from this unstable family. But only God can work that miracle.
If you love family sagas and drama based on true stories, you will love this book. The 1930s and 40s were a time of difficulty but hope carried them through.
My thoughts: I have enjoyed reading this series and getting to know the characters! I would recommend reading the series in order, since each book is a continuation of the story.
I liked that this book shows Fremont and Sibyl as they grow together as a couple and learn to stand on their own two feet. It would be hard to be somewhat dependent on family and to realize that it's not a good situation, but having a hard time changing your circumstances. I enjoyed seeing how this young couple's love has grown through the course of the story. This is a wonderful series to pick up and enjoy!
I received this book from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review.
