Romance Books

When Mrs. Paul's daughter was thirteen, she announced she wanted to read a grown-up love story. ACK! There was no way Mrs. Paul was going to let her read one of those bodice rippers. Both her son and daughter went away for ten days to the Christian Youth in Action camp to train for summer ministry. When they returned Mrs. Paul handed her daughter her first complete novel which had been written in her absence. During the next six weeks, she wrote the second. That is the one that sold and was published the year her daughter got married.

 
 
 

 

Taming the Wild Wind

Taming the Wild Wind

(an ebook)

Ida has always gone her own way like a gentle breeze, drifting through social barriers as if they weren't even there. Like the breeze, her comings and goings are hard to keep track of, and her family assumes Ida's activities are the same as the other society debutantes of Pittsburgh.

When she responds to the wilder wind of the Oklahoma prairie, she recognizes the untamed quality in her personality. She also comes to realize that even the wild wind has a Master. She submits to the hand of her Creator, her loving Heavenly Father, and allows Him to tame her willful nature.
