17 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on December 28, 2004
Format: Paperback
In 1935, a dying convict Bertha Zale confesses to the chaplain of New York State Women's Prison Father Anthony Mazzoni that she committed a terrible sin. In 1916 at the City Hospital, Bertha's baby died and she switched her infant for another. The Father does some research and realizes that a Grace Winslow, daughter of fifty something renowned artist Phil and his wife Cara died that day. He believes Bertha's s dying confession substantiated by information and informs the Winslows of what he heard and learned.

The Winslows hire Francis Key who locates Grace known as Ruby. He has a hard time persuading her, but to escape her brute of a boyfriend she agrees to take the train across the country to Long Island to meet the Winslows. In New York, her three siblings react differently, Brian and Paige have doubts that this street kid belongs in their upper class lifestyle and besides that makes one more person to split the inheritance with. The other brother Brian, who suffered a scarring facial injury as a teen welcomes her into the family. How will the family members adapt to this rough newcomer?

This is a terrific inspirational House of Winslow historical tale. The interrelationships between the various members of the Winslow family with each other and with three beaus including Francis, but especially with Grace are realistic, honest and exciting to follow as each will need to turn to Jesus for their personal solace. Fans will appreciate Gilbert Morris' latest winner that brings alive the 1930s Long island lifestyle in a warm upbeat way.

Gilbert Morris (and I assume the other writer) excells at characters. The characters: they're real, they're deep, they cry, and they're not afraid to cry. The story starts out with a tragedy and shows how family love can heal some pretty deep wounds. Kevin Winslow and Grace Winslow have every reason to withdraw from the world, but they must learn to face people to realize their dreams.

This book, like the others in The House of Winslow series, grabbed my attention from the beginning and never let it go. I again found the characters so believable -- their development so real. I appreciate the fact that the author shows the human flaws in his characters, even the most devoted Christian ones. Maybe that is why I feel so at home among them! I also found the story line and plot very interesting; one of my favorite aspects of Dr. Morris' books is the historical information he weaves into his stories. I come away from his novels with new knowledge of the historical events that impacted the lives of the characters in the book. However, the Christian testimony and witness which is in all of Dr. Morris' books, is the primary reason I read them. They inspire me to want to truly "walk the talk."

I like the Gilbert Morris books and the message they send. This one was a bit of a reach in the impulsive decisions the characters made. It seemed a little unrealistic to me for thoughtful individuals to make unexplained impulsive decisions be they good or bad.

As I read this series the need of the heart of each individual reader is touched.
In this for me it reminded me no matter what I was God can make me a virtuous woman.
He not only delivers us of sin he takes the guilt that binds us.
Oh weary heart read and be blessed.
