"For the background of this novel, set in the early 1920s, the author of In My Father's House and Preacher's Kids has again drawn on her own childhood experiences as daughter of a Methodist Minister in Massachusetts.
Marcy Minton is a Texas belle who to the dismay of her mother and childhood sweetheart Sam marries a Yankee Methodist preacher called David Gallant and goes off to live with him in Boston. But she is so used to being spoilt and to getting her own way that she finds it difficult to accept the duties of a preacher's wife. It is not until she understands David's faith and is willing to play a full part in his work rather than just boost his career that husband and wife finally achieve peace together."
