He shows them how to overcome disappointment, how to walk the paths of truth and right, how to meet temptations, how to love ones neighbor as oneself.One summer Parson Ben is especially busy in trying to help others find happiness. Before summers end Parson Ben himself experiences severe tensions and trials, and he find them almost too much to bear.That eventful summer is a difficult time not only for Parson Ben but also for his foster daughter, Patsy Vance. Torn between loyalty to her wealthy but cruel husband and love for doctor Peter McKim, Patsy learns how important it it to make the right choices and to live by them.This warm, intimately told story of youth disciplined by the wisdom of old age, of present happiness threatened by past mistakes, of tender love almost overwhelmed by cruelty, holds high the ideals of Christian morality in a world that badly needs the renewing power of mercy, forgiveness, and love.
