Publisher's Summary

Twenty years have passed since youngest daughter Belinda's story in Love Finds a Home. Marty and Clark's spiritual heritage has been lovingly passed on to their children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren. And now, beloved granddaughter Virginia faces the test of her young life. Caught in that difficult period between childhood and adulthood, feeling that she really doesn't fit anywhere, Virginia struggles against what she considers to be unreasonable restrictions and expectations.

A lively new girl arrives at school, and Jenny seems to represent everything that Virginia is longing for: her looks, her daring, her alluring freedom from constraints. But then comes the day neither girl will ever forget.

    Story
    "Another good book from Janette Oke!"

    It was a little slow in the beginning but turned out to be another good story from Janette Oke. Good for all ages but especially interesting to teens since it's a story about a young girl.

    "This book will bless your heart"

    This is a wonderful book about a young girl coming of age and haveing to deal with family friends and a terrible tragedy. She learns to love and trust in the lord and gives her soul over to him. After that life seems to look a litte diffferent to her. She learns more and more how prayer can really change someones life if you just have faith. I highly recommend this book I hope it touches your soul the way it has mine. May God Bless you and your family We need all to remember as christians to always be planting the seed of faih.
