Unfailing love, being the third book in the series, there are some unknown details for the reader who has not read the initial two books.  That being said, some details are made known during the book and a few remained unknown. But the story itself is lovely and sweet and a treasure.

Lillian Walsh and Grace Bennett have a home for runaways in the early 1900’s in a fictional town called Brookfield. They have learned to care for the children, help them to heal and find forever homes for them with adoptive families. They are sisters who had been separated as children then reunited so their compassion is understandable. At the start of this story, three children are runaways, two in defiance, one to protect the young girl who has struck out on her own. From that moment forward the story alternates between the runaways and their adventure and the lives of Lillian and Grace, particularly Lillian. She is in love but will her marriage force her to leave her work with Grace and move a distance away? Her father returns home with a young bride who is soon pregnant, oh, the embarrassment of that. But the Oke authors skillfully bring these various scenarios to satisfactory conclusions.
