Absolutely appalling that this lousy copy would make its way to Amazon!
Shirley Hollister has only a few weeks to find a new home for her family, her mother is ill and cannot help her and she and her brother bear the main financial burden for her mother, 2 sisters and younger brother. Money is very scarce and they can only afford $15.00 per month in rent. On an unexpected afternoon off she takes a trolley to look for a new home and overhears a conversation about a barn that they pass. It's stone, and looks very stable and Shirley immediately wonders if she could rent it for the summer, so they could save money and give her mother the fresh air she needs so much to hasten her healing. Making a quick tour of the old building, Shirley's hopes are high that they could make the move work for a few months.
After meeting with the owners son, Sidney Graham, Shirley waits to hear if she can rent the barn and is elated to find that Mr. Graham has become the owner and he is willing to rent it and insists on some modifications to make it more livable.
This is a classic romance with a modest hard working young Christian woman who is making the best of a life she never expected to live. You will enjoy this story and you will imagine how a barn can become a home for a family who needs so much.
This is a sweet story of two remarkable families and how their lives become connected. Too much of the story is told rather than shown, and there is a lot of description, but the story is still interesting. There were a few minor mistakes. "Kelp" for "help" and "toe" for "to" were probably scanning problems. It also read, "The doctor was deeply interest in the barn." I doubted if a wealthy businessman would just happen to have a flashlight in his pocket. It seemed a little strange that a four-year-old girl would always sleep in a crib. At one point, it says George smiled a welcome to Elizabeth, but a little later they had to swing by and pick George up from his work. And, I smiled at the thirty-bedroom cottage. Yet, I did like the novel.
THE ENCHANTED BARN tells the story of an impoverished family that was wasting away in a tenement, when they get an eviction notice. Even with everyone pulling together, there wasn't enough money to buy a decent place to live and they were facing a stifling hot summer in the dirty, crowded city. Then, the eldest daughter finds a beautiful, old deserted barn that was just begging to be loved! Can they live in a BARN??? Read it to find out!
