With only her faith and fierce Custer pride by her side, Ariel Custer thinks she’s heading to Philadelphia to accept work as a librarian’s assistant, until she winds up in the small town of Glenside instead. There her life becomes inextricably linked with lonely dreamer Judson Granniss, his stubborn and tyrannical mother, a trouble-maker named Dick Smalley, incessant gum-chewing upstart Helena Boggs, and love thwarted Miss Emily Dillon. But she never guessed that all this would lead to murder. . .
Mugsymom3 Stars Out Of 5Okay ReadJanuary 19, 2015MugsymomI had never read a Grace Livingston Hill book. While the story was cute, it was too predictable in that after not to long one could see how the relationship between Jud and Ariel would go. I personally found it exasperating to continually read of the harping, intimidating mother, Harriett, that no one seemed to have the strength to call her on her lack of Christianity. Emily, while wanting to show Christ in her attitude toward Harriett, became a door mat.

Like with most of her books, the characters in this one are very well portrayed, opposite types which stand out by their distinctive contrasts. However, rather than focusing mainly on Ariel Custer, the story line centers around Emily Dillon whom the author takes great care in displaying her innermost thoughts and desires which lead to her unexpected actions, causing the reader to wonder what had happened.
