This is an enjoyable read for anyone who enjoys an old fashioned christian drama/romance. The story is told through the eyes of a 12 year old orphan boy who is trying to keep his world from changing. He is trying to keep his grandpa from finding a husband for his 18 yr old aunt who is the only mother he has. I grew to love all the characters.
