When an out-of-state developer wants to drain Fairy Pond-a beloved piece of Acorn Hill's past-and put in a gas station, a storm of protest rises up in Acorn Hill. But while most residents are opposed to destroying the idyllic spot, some businesspeople are in favor of the added commerce a gas station would bring. With the town divided, Mayor Lloyd Tynan is having a hard time keeping everyone happy, but when the stress starts to affect his health, the fight over Fairy Pond takes on a new urgency. With the mayor out of commission, who will champion the cause of saving this natural wonder? A recluse who lives by the pond has some answers, but his strange history with Louise complicates matters. As the Howard sisters take charge to fight the development, help arrives from an unexpected source and reminds the whole town of the wonder of God's creation.

Actually, I read the story in paperback form. I have been reading Grace Chapel Inn books for a few years now, and I think this is my favorite. I hated to put it down when duty called. The sisters were at their best this time, and the town of Acorn Hill was in an uproar over plans to destroy a favored spot named Fairy Pond. It's owner wants to develop the land for his benefit, by building a convenience store and six-pump gas station! Naturally, this news has upset most of the residents of the peaceful little town.
Besides that, the inn has it's first critical couple who spend their time there complaining about one thing ans then another, testing the patience and good will of the sisters. Ethel is worried about Lloyd who is not taking the tension of what seems to be a divided town because of the Fairy Pond controversy.
All in all it makes a great story and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I think you will too. A great book for teens too.
