THE CITY OF FIRE by Grace Livingston Hill

Although I am a BIG fan of Grace Livingston Hill, this wasn't one of my favorite stories.  It seemed a little slow  She had a good message in the story, as all of her stories do, but I just didn't get into the story line that much.

Marilyn Severn is the minister's daughter in Sabbath Valley and has just returned home from her years at college.  She grew up knowing and hanging out with Mark Carter from her town but when she returns she finds him cold and distant from her.  Mark will eventually become a prime suspect for a murder he did not commit and only one boy in town can prove his innocence, but he cannot be found.  Sometimes it takes desperate times in people's lives to show them the love of the heavenly Father, and the love of people in your life that you don't think you are worthy of.  A message of hope for the hopeless and of God working all things out for good because of those who love Him and are called according to His purposes.
