We thought nothing could match Hidden Hand or Ishmael but this one is close to it if not just as wonderful. When we began to read it , we were immediately drawn into the book. Mrs. Sheldon left clues for us to try and figure out what was going to happen, but we could not figure it out,which was great fun. We had a hard time putting it down. The children often went to bed late when we were reading this novel. What a masterful writer. We know you will love this book as we did!
From the Publisher:
If you’re looking for a good mystery with plenty of action, strong characterization, and a complex plot, this book is for you. As you try to piece it all together, you’ll inevitably find yourself wondering what you would do in many situations, as inner and outward conflicts rise to an exhilarating crescendo. Pearle, the beautiful bride, paves the way in a captivating first chapter as, with horror in her eyes, she walks down the aisle. Then her sudden disappearance wreaks havoc, and she is relentlessly pursued. Trials and tragedy often reveal one’s true nature, and Pearle comes out shining as she demonstrates great courage and inner strength. She soon realizes that, out of trials that seem to crush us to the earth, we can rise through God’s love and help into a purer and better life than we have ever known.
