If These Walls Could Talk
by Patricia Gray Diamond
If These Walls Could Talk—It’s not just a story about a house, but the events shaping lives inside those walls and throughout the small Midwest town of St. Charles, Missouri. Beginning in 1850, it follows the story of one family, and then another, until finally concluding in the 1940s as the home takes on new meaning when it becomes a boarding house. Meet two different families and a host of boarders as they discover that life can be sorrowful and tragic, but with faith and hope in God, it can hold true happiness and meaning. Follow along as one family faces tragedy within the house, the next family deals with sorrow beyond its doors, and finally the boarders learn the value of true friendship.
