The Gold That Glitters The Mistakes of Jenny Lavender - 1896
Emily Sarah Holt
genre - Historical Fiction, Inspirational Fiction
my rating - 3 out of 5 stars
I especially enjoyed the sermon
given by a strange preacher in Chapter 5. He spoke about blessings, desiring
salvation, and wants vs. needs.
I ended up doing some research about 'Will
Jackson', if a common family would have had their own Bible to study back then,
and if 'unequally yoked' was a concept known at least when this story was
written (1896) much less in the year 1651.
Go ahead and read this, and then if
you want to know more about a certain character in the story experiencing
ordinary life, read Georgette Heyer's Royal Escape.
