Since his father’s death, Lawrence Hammond has cared for his mother and younger brother and sister, just as his father asked him to. Though he dreams of a college education, Lawrence knows his place is on the family farm, working hard to support the family he loves.
Soon the farm prospers and once again Lawrence’s dream is close enough to touch, when family needs call for yet another sacrifice. Does Lawrence have the strength to again postpone his own heart’s desire for the people he loves?
This touching story of faith and family duty was first published in 1898.
