About the Book

The saga of the lives of Clem and Susannah Brown and their family continues to unfold. The first book in The Fruit of the Spirit Series dealt with Clem’s childhood and subsequent marriage to Susannah and all the trials and tragedies they experienced through the years. Their children are Thomas, Ruth and Jeff. This book deals with their daughter Ruth from ages four to eighteen. She misbehaves as a child and doesn’t show respect and love to her family and feels they don’t love her. The prayer life of her family is greatly increased due to her attitude. She wants out of Victory, Texas, and off the farm. She wants big city life and wants to teach school. Her grandparents spoil her by giving her anything she wants. She eventually goes off to college in Houston and graduates top of her class in 1910, but through it all she shows lack of respect and love to her family many, many times with her prideful and haughty attitude. She applies for teaching jobs in four states and wants a big city. The only offer she gets is from a small town in Georgia in a one-room school. Everyone advises her to take it as a first-year teacher. She finally consents, but God has a plan for Ruth. The plan unfolds in a most unusual way to get her attention. Discover what happens to and in Ruth.
