Life seemed to be going as planned, and success was on the horizon for Chester Thornton and his family.  The deal he had worked on for months had finally come through and now Chester could focus on the Christmas ahead and the lavish gifts that he had always wanted to bestow upon his wife and children, that is until a conversation on a train ride home sets his world spinning into turmoil.  How could he have been so blind to what was going on at home, and to what his children had become?  Had he really been that uninvolved with what his children were learning at school, and the type of friends they had?  Where had he and his wife gone wrong?  Hadn’t they raised their children in church?  Hadn’t they set a proper example for their children?  Why was this happening to his family?

For Betty Thornton, oldest daughter of Chester Thornton, life was about what she wanted.  She had come into her high school years embracing the new age of ideas and the new way of living life.  No one would drag her back into the prudish ways of the past.  Betty deserved to live life to its fullest, and nothing was going to stop her from doing just that, even her parents’ antiquated ideas based on a bunch of old myths in the Bible.
