River of Fire
As pastor of a small church in Apple Valley, Arkansas, Adam embraces the entire valley as his congregation. Friends and neighbors all respect him as a man of God. He is content to stay there laboring for the Lord for the rest of his life. Then he receives a telegram inviting him to become pastor of the most prestigious church in Chicago. At first Adam refuses the offer. Who will care for his widowed mother and his congregation? Finally, believing this is God’s will, he surrenders. But things are not as they seem. He accepts unaware he is playing into the hands of extortionists and murderers. On the train to Chicago, Adam meets and is smitten with 19-year-old Victoria Winters, whose first job as a schoolteacher has ended in disaster. Falsely accused of beating a student, she is fired, jailed and run out of town. Although instantly attracted to Adam, Victoria is not so sure. Can she trust this strange man from the hill country? Can he overcome her fears and win her heart?
