What??? All This Happened to ONE Person???
on September 8, 2002
Elizabeth Grace LeRoy Bishop's life hasn't exactly been a walk through the park. Starting out life with only one parent, she learns as a teenager (on the same night she commits her life to Christ) that her father is dying of cancer. She is left only with a bitter, greedy aunt, but she still hopes that she can find some joy and fulfillment in her life. Soon enough, it seems that that will happen, since at church camp, Elizabeth meets handsome, kind, Christian, and too-good-to-be-true Ben Phillips. Tragedy mars that relationship as well, when Elizabeth learns on her senior high gradution day that Ben is missing in action as he fought in WW1. And her life continues in this fashion, until it seems that some sort of catastrophe has happened to everyone that Elizabeth cares about.
[...] In conclusion-this is a book that I think tries to make a valuable about being a faithful Christian no matter what, but it makes the point in a way that's a little TOO extreme.
