I've been reading Matched Pearls, the first Grace Livingston Hill book I discovered in my highschool's library over 20 years ago. It clearly explains the plan of salvation throughout, encouraging us to

At breakfast, Constance's family had grapefruit, oatmeal, hot rolls, egg and bacon. While reading, I've always thought, "How nice," but now that I'm listing these meals it seems like a huge amount of food- several breakfasts, even. I'll assume their portion sizes weren't as ours, or mine, are today.

Matched Pearls takes place around Easter while daffodils and hepaticas are blooming. Constance and her brother change as they learn more about Christian life from their new friends.
