This story is about Cora Parkhurst, a typical young lady of fashion who is teaching a Sunday School class to girls her own age. Or rather, she is not teaching anything to the other girls, but is simply occupying the position of Sunday School teacher because it seems like a good thing to do. Early in the story, she is vividly contrasted with Robert Hammond, a young man who is teaching a class of somewhat younger men.

Cora skips over her lessons carelessly and without preparation, and everyone - including herself - is glad when class is done. Mr. Hammond is actively doing battle against any threat, physical or spiritual, from habits to careless words, that weakens his students' interest in and knowledge of God, His commands, and their position in relation to Him. He is definitely a cunning workman - actively and intelligently fighting for his students' spiritual allegiance to God and their Saviour.

At first, Mr. Hammond feels contempt for Cora's ineffective leadership, which is actually spiritually compromising the girls in her class. But he starts to try to help her when he realizes that she isn't uninterested in her students' spiritual welfare - she just has no idea how to teach anyone, even herself. She is willing to try, though the idea of failing even if she does make an effort is a painful one - especially since her fiancee "won't tolerate religious nonsense", and her family also looks on her genuine efforts with disdain.

I enjoyed this story, but didn't think it was one of Isabella Alden's best. I couldn't help but notice that she seems very eager to condemn some things that "may lead" to sinful activities later - for example, croquet is technically harmless, but it familiarizes young people with knocking colored balls about, which "may lead" them into billiards, a terrible game played solely to cheat others out of money. Drinking innocent apple cider is condemned, because it "may lead" young people to think rum tastes good, and spiral into dissolute alcoholism. However she has a double standard - croquet and cider are described as the first easy steps on the path to a wicked life, but she never saw or anticipated that women speaking out in church meetings "may lead" to women demanding to preach at the altar, which is specifically forbidden both in the OT and NT, unlike rum and billiards.

I don't mean by that comment to tread on the feelings of anyone who may support women in that role, it's just a double standard I noticed in the author.

It was also disappointing that the book ended very abruptly, without resolving Cora's relationship problem in a definite way.

This is a good story and I did enjoy it, but the reasons above are why I didn't think it one of Isabella Alden's best.

One of the best books I have read in quite a while. Hated to put it down, beautifully written, defintely thought provoking, loved it!
