The Teacher

Isaiah 35:10
"And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away." KJV

When Maria Dalton, a young orphan, comes to Chesterfield as the schoolteacher, trouble ensues. As several of the students try to force her to leave, the War Between the States breaks out. But a young man named Wesley Elliot follows God's plan for his life and chooses to defend both the young teacher and his country.
Set in the midst of a time of turmoil caused not only by the war, but by worldviews such as Darwin's Theory of Evolution and the Women's Rights movement beginning to win popularity, this tale presents the little known views of most women of the times.
In today's culture, we often hear about the daring exploits of girls who, disguising themselves as boys, spied on the enemy. Although there may have been a few girls who did this, the idea of such a thing would never have occured to the majority of girls. Be refreshed as you discover the little known, but predominant views and actions of most women and girls of the 19th century.
While the issue of Women's Rights is the encompassing theme, The Teacher is also written from the perspective of the rarely represented Northern Christians who were convicted that slavery is wrong, and who were fighting for what they believed in, truly thinking they were fighting to end slavery.

1 Peter 4:13"But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy." KJV

Quotes from the book
"I do verily believe that to be married to a good and true Christian man, considered by him to be worthy to assist him in raising godly children, and to hold your own sweet babies in your arms, training them as they grow, and to see them become, after you, godly Christian men and women, strong in the faith, is the highest honor, the sweetest privelege, the greatest joy a woman can possibly have." ...The Teacher
"Look yonder at the sunset. Our future lives together will be like unto it. Beautiful, yet nothing new or exciting, an everyday occurance like the sunset, yet joyous living, resonant of the glory, majesty, and splendor of our God and Creator and King." ...The Teacher

"A man will be much more affected by the desires of the sweet, pure, godly woman he loves than by the political debates of the most intellectual women in the world..." ...The Teacher
