According to the Pattern

 

According to the Pattern is one of Grace's early books and it's "off the beaten path".

The first chapter is entitled "The Fallen Idol" and sets the scene for the rest of the story. Mrs. Winthrop, out in the park with her little daughter, suddenly comes upon her husband who is out with another woman. Not quite the usual GLH romance, is it?

Pick up a copy and share her struggle to live "according to the pattern" despite what's going on around her. Sounds a bit like it could have been written today, yes? An interesting departure from the usual novels.

This is one of the rare first editions of According to the Pattern. It was published on September 1, 1903 by The Griffith and Rowland Press and is copyrighted by The American Baptist Publication Society.
