The Children of Cloverley

coc1 1The Children of Cloverley by Hesba Stretton. A sequel to Fern's Hollow.

A farm family lived by Lake Heron, during the Civil War. The father left home to fight in the war and the children were sent to Cloverley, England. The life with their cousins in Cloverley is an adjustment with less heavy labor and more education. The coal mining town is out of work until the new shaft is completed, but first the will of God must be trusted. The theme of the story is submission to the will of God in all things. An important verse is Matthew 6:10—"Thy will be done on earth, as it is done in heaven."
