Story Synopsis, The City of Fire by Grace Livingston Hill: Lynn Severn, the beautiful daughter of a small town minister, is deeply troubled by the barrier which has come between her and her former playmate, Mark Carter. Billy Gaston, a former admirer of both, indulges in a thoughtless prank which causes Mark to be kidnapped and taken to a secluded house in the mountains in mistake for the sone of a wealthy family. During the night of the kidnapping a lover of a certain girl named “Cherry,” with whom Mark was known to be friendly, is shot. Mark is accused of the murder, and cannot prove an alibi. Billy is afraid to tell the truth. He alone can same Mark and affairs look black, but through it all one feels sure that Lynn Severn's faith will triumph, shining always like a beacon of hope amid the surrounding darkness of uncertainty. A more lovable heroine than this simple and natural girl would be difficult to find.
