Ruth Erskine Burnham’s life should be perfect. Her husband is a well-respected judge; her elegant home is the envy of her neighbors; and she’s the proud mother of a precocious little boy and step-mother to two grown daughters. But behind closed doors, Ruth’s life is far from perfect.
Her step-daughters value fashion over their faith; they’d rather attend parties with friends than attend church with Ruth. And while Judge Burnham knew Ruth was a Christian before they married, he has done his best to lure her away from what he thinks are Ruth’s fanatical Christian beliefs.
With pressure from all sides, Ruth struggles to lead the life she knows God wants her to live . . . until events come together to show Ruth that she can influence her family for Christ only if she allows God to work through her.
This edition includes group discussion questions, a biography of the author and an introduction to Isabella Alden’s books by Christian author Jenny Berlin.
