Excerpt

e New Year's earliest beam, Pondering deeply if a lesson Could be learned, e'en from a dream.


THE LIGHT

The way is long, the night is drear, I stumble on through doubt and fear; My heart grows numb, all hope takes flight; Oh, Father, let me see the light!

Was it for me that He has died? Was it for me the Crucified Bore the deep anguish in the night?-- Oh, Father, let me see the light!

O doubting child, look up and see, It was for sinners, such as thee, Christ conquered sin, and death, and night. Look up, dear child, behold The Light!


SISTER DEAR, I LOVE YOU SO

Sister dear, I love you so! As the seasons come and go, Dearer still, my friend, you grow. Sister dear, I love you so!

Sister dear, I love you so! Ah, forgive each thoughtless blow; Though I've often hurt you--oh, Sister dear, I love you so!

Sister dear, I love you so! May love's flame still brighter glow, Friendship's fires ne'er burn low.-- Sister dear, I love you so!

Sister dear

As she has found too many romance books are serious with poor, orphaned heroines, her novels are filled with humor and buzzing with family life. As our Author of the Day, Weger chats about how the Alabama Raised cottages inspired her latest book, Persimmon Road, reveals why she included a Civil War era ghost in the story and much more.
