Matthew 25:40 says, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” Though not specifically stated, these are the words that the main character, Grant, lives by in Mary Connealy's Gingham Mountain. The time is 1870 in rural Texas – the end of the line for the orphan train. Grant has an agreement with the matron escorting orphans from New York, that he will adopt any children that have not been adopted by the last stop in Sour Springs, Texas. Little does he know that the two children on this trip would change his life forever. Grant has promised God that he will take care of any children that come his way, because he personally experienced life on the streets as an orphan. But will that rule out marriage and his own children? Family relationships and local intrigue add spice to the plot.

Mary Connealy leads the readers on an adventure through the tiny town of Sour Springs. The church-going neighbors aren’t always as kind as they might be, but the entire town learns several lessons from the godly Grant and his adopted children.

The author enriches the characters by telling of their background when it’s part of understanding their present actions. God’s love and peace radiate from Grant and his children, which in turn reaches even the worst people in town, the school bullies and their tough father, whom the pastor leads to peace and forgiveness.

I really enjoyed this book. It is light-hearted and fun, if not a little predictable. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a quick, amusing, engaging adventure to another time and place, finding ordinary people work through problems in a godly manner. – Lyn Haval, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
