Publisher's Summary

Soon-to-be heiress Betty Stanhope is a runaway bride, but not for the usual reasons - she didn't flee because of a change of heart. Reluctant about the wedding at the outset, the dutiful Betty reaches the altar to find that her groom is a different man altogether and someone she's dreaded most of her life! Before the wedding can proceed, she is taken to a room to recover from her fainting spell. She finds a way to escape and has the good fortune to happen upon a quick-witted factory girl, Jane Carson, who bundles Betty, frothy wedding gown and all, to her room. They hatch a plan to move Betty to Jane's family in the country.
Living with the impoverished Carsons teaches Betty many things: love of family, love of God, and the importance of standing up for herself. When her would-be groom advertises a $5,000 reward for her recovery, the wheels of good and evil are set in motion, and the chase is on!

one of my childhood favorites!

This is a sweet love story. The beautiful heiress is almost taken over by her wicked stepmother and her two creepy sons but she is helped by a poor working girl. She saves her and her whole family gets involved in keeping her hidden from the bad guys. It's funny and cute and fulfilling, with a beautiful happily ever after.
If you like stories from a bygone era, you'll love the stories of GLH, although some are better than the others.

AMAZING

I just love to good win out over evil, and the bad guys get what's due. God is always the winner.
