Shirley Hollister is desperate. She, her ailing mother, and her four siblings are being forced out of their cramped city apartment. Where to go on her meager stenographer's salary? On a whim, she takes a trolley ride into the countryside and spies a barn: spacious, full of light, and surrounded by God's wondrous nature. Her new landlord, Sidney Graham, is intrigued by this lovely young woman and her plans to turn his abandoned barn into a home.
Famed Christian fiction author Grace Livingston Hill's tale of a plucky girl determined to better her life is full of romance and adventure as Shirley (in escapades reminiscent of Nancy Drew and The Perils of Pauline) confounds spies and embezzlers with her quick thinking and profound faith.

I absolutely love the voice of the reader. She does a great job interpreting the emotions and the personalities of the characters. The overall story had some great unexpected twists. However, the ending was a little flat. If you want a clean story with early American culture and charm, this is the book for you!
