Nineteen years old and from a small town, Ursula finds seminary a delight. While home for the summer she puzzles over what to make of herself. This Christian story written by Howe Benning, in 1884, portrays the tension between Ursula┐s own desires and God┐s plans for her. Engaging with friends, family, and neighbors, she embarks on adventures which test her independence. The parting words of Miss Elno, her seminary teacher, ┐simply follow Jesus┐ echo in her mind, as God surprises her with new beginnings.
