So much one can get from this story. Miss Lilly Westbrook writes romance stories with a message of faith and hope. High Society does not allow their women to work. It is a rule. They look down their noses and oust the family if their children don't live up to their high standards - sounds a lot like the Amish shunning to me. Lilly keeps her ministry hidden for this reason from both her parents and is afraid to let anyone but her best friend know. Yet she has this compelling feeling to write. She doesn't need the money. She does it so she can donate it all to a Women's Shelter. She does not write under her own name. How many of us can relate to rules even in a church and trying to live up to what other people think instead of walking in our freedom to serve God in the ministry as he would like. Jack felt beneath Lilly's family and because of what he overhears before he can ask for Lilly's hand in marriage, he leaves for 6 years. He doesn't write or correspond in any way with Lilly while he is trying to fit into high Society so he will be good enough for her. Most of us when we are in love if we would admit sometimes don't feel good enough for the one we love. I know I didn't. I was poor and my husband had more than me and I didn't think he could love me for me. But I have been married 31 years. Lilly almost marries to please her family but when it comes down to it she just cannot do it. She wants there to be love. This book shows how all of us sometimes hide behind a mask instead of showing the world the people we really are. I enjoyed it and found it hard to put down once I got into it.
