More Info

Two years after the Civil War, Lydia Albright, 27, is an established teacher in Boston when she senses God's call to leave the comfort and security of her job and go south. She accepts a position to teach in a school for former slaves in Charleston, South Carolina. A Church there that's affiliated with the American Missionary Association offers support, along with room and board at the parsonage.

The Ku Klux men are hell-bent on seeing that the new school fails. Lydia's life is threatened, and the parsonage, church, and school are vandalized.

But they haven't contended with a strong, determined woman like Lydia before. It also helps that she has a couple of potential suitors on her side.

 A love to Behold is a tale of people who grow stronger in the face of adversity and a Church that learns love, compassion, and acceptance, even in the face of cruelty and hatred.

A great read. Loved this book!

I really enjoyed this book. Once I started I didn't want to put it down. I loved the main characters who stood on their faith and Godly principles through all circumstances. It would even make a good gift for a non-believer.
