In the meantime, everything in Daisy Bank seemed crooked and out of shape. Across stretches of dark stagnant water, Marjorie wandered over the wilderness of ashes, wondering how anything could grow in such poor and barren soil. But she learns that even in the midst of that bleak, coal-mining region, she can be 'a tree of the Lord's planting,' bringing sunshine and growth to the dark, dreary world in which she finds herself. 288 pages, hardcover. Written in 1907.
