The hall in the grove
The good folk of Centerville were scandalized! Mrs. Fenton, a simple housewife, was having gatherings in her parlor, where she had the gall to mix idle, uneducated folk with members of the well-educated upper class. There, along with a law student and an eminent professor, sat a housemaid and the cigar-smoking, good-for-nothing Ward boys and their equally idle companion Paul! The reason for their monthly gatherings? To form Centerville's own chapter of the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Society! Convinced this was a foolish enterprise, the townspeople made no secret of their distaste that such a ludicrous mix of people would gather to study ancient Rome, theology . . . and the Bible.Then, beyond anyone's wildest imaginings, miracles began to happen.Heartwarming stories of faith and love by Grace Livingston Hill's aunt-Isabella Alden. Each book is similar in style and tone to Hill's and is set in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
