"There can be help. There's always God," said Amy. "I'm ashamed. I'd forgotten about Him." She was quiet for a time. When she lifted her head she looked older and resolute. "Don't blame yourself too much, Cousin Caroline," she said. "That's as bad as taking no blame at all. I'm not going to blame everything on Ames; I was a little fool myself. I was old enough to know that things aren't simple." - A Prologue to Love Taylor Caldwell was born in Manchester, England, into a family of Scottish background. Her family descended from the Scottish clan of MacGregor of which the Taylors are a subsidiary clan. In 1907 she emigrated to the United States with her parents and younger brother. Her father died shortly after the move, and the family struggled.In 1918-1919, she served in the United States Navy Reserve. In 1919 she married William F. Combs. In 1920, they had a daughter, Mary (known as "Peggy"). From 1923 to 1924 she was a court reporter in New York State Department of Labor in Buffalo, New York. In 1924, she went to work for the United States Department of Justice, as a member of the Board of Special Inquiry (an immigration tribunal) in Buffalo. In 1931 she graduated from the University of Buffalo, and also was divorced from William Combs. Caldwell then married her second husband, Marcus Reback, a fellow Justice employee. She had a second child with Reback, a daughter Judith, in 1932. They were married for 40 years, until his death in 1971.

I chose this book from my college library stack 25 years ago on a Friday afternoon when I had no weekend plans. I left my desk only when absolutely necessary, or to sleep, until I finished the book. Without a doubt, the best book I have ever read. Atlas Shrugged runs a close second. I have picked it up several times to read again through the years.
I first read this book as a young teen and was impressed, not realizing how much subtle information was in the book about the state of the world. Over the years I have read this book several times, and just recently found it again. I can only say that if you are open minded enough; you will be amazed at the information in this book about the new world order.
This is, by far, the best book I have ever read. Taylor Caldwell's writing style allows the reader a vivid sense of the character's personalities and lifestyles. You feel like you are right there in the era, in their homes and in their lives. The best part of the book is realizing the true meaning that many readers could never identify with in their personal lives. Hopefully, you are not one of those people. You will want to share this book with others, after you have read it as quickly as you can, because you won't want to put it down!
