Publisher Description

She made the difficult decision with only her daughter's best interest in mind . . . but did she sacrifice too much?

When her husband dies, Sarah Perry is left with no way to support herself and her daughter, Rebecca. Reluctantly, she takes over operation of her husband's freight-hauling business, managing to save enough money to send Rebecca east to a boarding school-- to an easier life and a future Sarah could not provide.

With the boarding-school fees consuming Sarah's savings, there is no money left for trips home. Over the years, the chasm between mother and daughter becomes much more than geographical distance, and when Rebecca finally returns home, it seems that she and her mother are from different worlds. What hope is there of breaking down the enormous barriers between them?

Good story about the love of a mother to a daughter who didn’t care about remarrying after the death of husband to care for her daughter

Too Long A Stranger

I loved this story because of the lessons that were woven into the plot, especially the salvation message. Sarah learned a lesson that she shouldn't have sent Rebecca away all those years and not having been her main influence to teach her the important things in life. Rebecca found out that with all her training, that she had not learned the most important things in life like, her salvation and appreciation for her mother's love and sacrifice. I love the scriptures that were used. Thank you.
