This Week's Book From the Vault!

This Week's Book From the Vault Is:
Kind-Hearted Woman by Janet Spaeth

Colin hasn't always lived like this.

Colin Hammett is on the road, drifting, searching for meaning in life. Maybe 1935 wasn't the best year to do this - deep in the Great Depression - as it seems half the country is on the road with him. But this is his life now, and he's not sure where to turn next.

Lolly Prescott is feeling every moment of a hot, dry, penniless summer. Life was never exciting before, but now she's just. . .trapped. So when her brothers carry a half-dead man in the front door onto the couch, she doesn't know whether to run or just give in and give up.

As Colin struggles to regain his memory, the Prescotts' financial situation reaches the breaking point. Can the attraction between Colin and Lily grow into a relationship amid such uncertainty? Can it survive when all seems lost?

"Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord." Jeremiah 17:7

Have you heard family stories of the Great Depression?
