Curiosmith, May 12, 2014 - 192 pages
Dell, a committed Christian and temperance worker, was anguished when she moved back to her father's village tavern. Challenged to do good, she found much opposition when she ran the household in a bright, clean way. She repeatedly had to go back to her heavenly Father for strength and direction. "She had forgotten for a moment whose child she was. The King's Daughter! She must not forget that. Truly she had a Father whom not only all the earth but all heaven adored." An important verse is Isaiah 55:8-"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord."

About the author (2014)

Isabella Macdonald (1841-1930) was born in Rochester, New York, into a well-educated and religious family. The nickname "Pansy" was given to her by her father, because she picked pansies in her childhood. She attended school at Seneca Collegiate Institute at Ovid, New York, and then at Young Ladies Institute, Auburn, New York. In 1866, she married Gustavus Rosenberg Alden, a Presbyterian minister. She communicated the Gospel through writing Sunday-school lessons, magazine articles, and hundreds of stories in her lifetime.
