Now this is a book that stands on it’s own but also lead’s you from the character’s of ‘Not My Will’. I call The Light In My Window, a sequel. This book starts you off with Hope Thompson. A young girl not sure of herself went to a agency looking for a job. Having had a very bad experience at her last job she didn’t want to deal with men. She was finally sent to Sherman Street where they needed a cook. When she arrived and saw the deprived homes, wondered what she was getting into. Then she saw Henderson Institute, with ah she rang the bell. There she met little Chad who took her to see his mother who was suffering from what we would call a migraine. There she met Eleanor King (Stewart), and Billy. Later on she met Dr. Phil King
She participated in all the activities sponsored by Henderson Institute, where they struggled to help the members of the community. They had cooking and sewing classes for the mother’s and young girls. There Hope met Dr. Ben as everyone call him. He came to check on the babies and emergencies for the community. Phil was a pastor and taught the Bible to the members of the community that would come to the small church attached to the Institute. They had devotions with all the staff every morning, praying for guidance in all their activities. Hope and Billy became close friends but Billy sensed that all was not right with Hope. Billy, had another friend, Stan Dykstra that came and decided to stay and work with the young boy’s. Hope struggled with visions of the past, God, and the love she had for Stan……………..
In closing the back cover say’s it better than I can “Her story reflects the inner battles everyone has at some time in their life. The answer Hope found did not come in a blinding flash but came quietly in calm understanding and acceptance.” Read about her journey in “The Light In My Window”
