THE ANGEL OF HIS PRESENCE by Grace Livingston Hill

This was Grace Livingston Hill's first book she wrote.  It is a short story, but very well done for her first work.  It tells the story of a young man who left his first love (the Lord) and went in search of a better life abroad.  He returns to his home town and through a special gift from a church youth group (a famous painting) found hanging on his wall at home he begins to discover what he is really missing in his life.  This author always does a very good job of bringing out a good spiritual message in her stories.  Sometimes  people let what they think "success" is get in the way of what really matters and brings lasting joy and peace in one's life.  I liked the way the author brought this out in her story.
