THE FIELDS OF GOMORRAH by Nelia Gardner White


Email this review


All wives of clergymen in small towns will like this -- but how big a market is that? And all small town minded people should read it -- but they would not like it. It would hit too near the bull's eye. The story of an eager young couple, idealists, enthusiasts -- and of the blighting of their faith in human kindliness and tolerance and open-mindedness. The young wife feels she has lost her faith -- and carries through life the burden of confession unmade. But her husband -- a Christian in the finest sense -- guesses her secret, and discounts it in the evidence of her true greatness of spirit. A warmly human story -- but watch your customer, and don't try to do missionary work with it.
