Any passionate reader will tell you that getting a book suggestion by someone that you know and care for is golden. In his new book, Redeeming the Southern Family: Evangelical Women and Domestic Devotion in the Antebellum South, Scott Stephan argues that white southern women enjoyed more authority than historians have realized.

But the longing for a community like Starhill points to something deeper than material comfort: it expresses the innate desire to be known and cared for, as Ruthie Leming was. The church is the primary setting in which Christians are called to love others, living in harmony with the body of Christ.
