"I was preparing my secret booster solution of one part buttermilk, two parts Orange Crush, and about to inject it into the thick stem of my world-class Big Max-technically a variety of squash, but often the winner in giant pumpkin contests. I called him Max for short. He was the biggest squash I had ever grown- 107 inches wide around his middle-which put him over 300 pounds, approximately. Awesome was the only word for it, especially since this was only August. We had forty-six days to go until the Rock River Pumpkin Weigh-in and Harvest Fair, where I, at sixteen years of age, am the only teenager ever to enter the adult growing division. I was facing heavy competition for the blue ribbon from Cyril Pool, four-time Weigh-In champ and a deeply despicable person. If I didn't win I was sure I'd die, which was why I couldn't bother with anything else right now. I stirred my booster solution to get it good and frothy and let the long tube attached to Max's stem Joan Bauer carry the mixture to his core. This would, hopefully, make him more intensely mammoth, which is what growing giant pumpkins is all about. That, and absolute courage. I patted Max, who gurgled happily, and fixed thoughts of victory in my mind. I could see myself acing the blue ribbon from Cyril Pool's grungy hands- bowing to the crowd, who roared their support. Standing proudly as Mrs. McKenna pinned the blue ribbon on me. Waving to the press, saying, "It was nothing, really." Being carried on my classmates' shoulders across Founders' Square, playing it real humble. ..." What will really happen at the pumpkin growing contest?

This charming journal of a nineteenth century girl takes us from her sixteenth birthday ("How dreadfully old I am getting!") to her last entries when she was ill and in her forties, aware that she had very little time left. It is a story of the shaping of a soul-of her learning day by day, in the seemingly insignificant little events of an ordinary life, that deep happiness is found, not in seeking fulfillment for oneself, but in a glad and free self-offering for the sake of others. We follow her maturing to womanhood, we learn of her narrow escape from commitment to the wrong man, and of her engagement and marriage to the right one. But there was not as much "honey" on the honeymoon as her dreams had predicted. She had had no practice in giving up her own preferences in a day-to-day relationship with a man. She says to herself, at one point in her journal, "I would like to know if there is any reason on earth why a woman should learn self-forgetfulness which does not also apply to a man?" When little Ernest is born she finds he has a passionate temper and a good deal of self-will, along with fine qualities. "I wish he had a better mother. I am so impatient with him when he is wayward and perverse! ... Next to being a perfect wife I want to be a perfect mother. How mortifying, how dreadful in all things to come short of one's standards!" Having in-laws living with the family is another opportunity to "step heavenward," receiving grace to help as grace is continually needed. This book is a treasure of godly and womanly wisdom, told with disarming candor and humility, yet revealing a deep heart's desire to know God. We need such intimate accounts, need them desperately when the word commitment is so little understood and so seldom practiced.
During Mr. Hardy's investigation of a ruthless gang of terrorists, Frank and Joe witness an explosion in the sky near an airborne dirigible owned by Quinn Air Fleet. They decide to look into the matter.
