Gilding the Waters: A Novel of Lost Causes and Found Love
He’s trying to stay in business.
The world tries to box us in, to classify us according to our jobs or our appearance, but in Christ we're set free to become our best selves.
Why the author wrote this book:
The twentieth century's dawn brought the end of the mineral springs resorts, but opened more professions to women. Two people whose lives are in flux, a hotelier struggling to keep his resort going and the first female chemist hired at the prestigious Geophysical Institute, journey through a state on the threshold of great change, Virginia. The heroine thinks her exceptional height will keep her from finding love, but the hero will show her a new appreciation for the way God made her.
