Now Paul and Miriam married with a baby on the way Paul can see how unhappy Miriam is without her friend, Amanda. It’s been three years now since she left the valley. Miriam demanded Paul go look for her. Paul still not caring for Angel at all argues over and over but finally gives in and goes to Sacramento to check the bordellos where he figures she is.
Next on to San Francisco. Not really eager to find her. What would he say. He hated her. He didn’t want her to come home. But if he ever wanted peace from Miriam he would have to try to find her.
“Come to me, beloved. Stand and come to me.”
Oh, if only Michael could walk down that church isle with her as she accepted Christ. All because of him had she been able to come full circle and more. Trusting her life now to the one true God. Michael’s God.
After 6 month living with the Axles’ she finally knew what she wanted to do with her life. Running in to Torie, one of the Duchesses’ girls, she knew right then and there that she wanted to help women like Torie, like herself escape that life of misery.
With Jonathans’ friends financially supporting her by buying a house by the docks her and Susanna moved in and started teaching and guiding and helping those fallen doves to find a new way of supporting themselves.
The house was filled with young girls wanting to learn and Susanna and Angel were great team. Jonathan had not wanted this kind of life for his daughter but God had his plans and they were filled with joy helping women this way. Getting them jobs and some even rose to become prominent members of the town. Married with children and respected. All the things Angel could have only dreamed of for herself.
God was working in Susanna life as much or more as He was in Angels. ***
