A Daughter of the Vine was written by Gertrude Atherton. In this emotionally engaging and richly detailed multi-generational epic, author Gertrude Atherton uses her own family history as a lens through which to trace the evolution of the fictional Randolph family, from their roots in England to their eventual ascendance to power and prestige in the rough-and-tumble pioneer era of California. Gertrude Atherton (October 30, 1857 – June 14, 1948) was a prominent and prolific American author. Many of her novels are set in her home state of California. Her bestseller Black Oxen (1923) was made into a silent movie of the same name. In addition to novels, she wrote short stories, essays, and articles for magazines and newspapers on such issues as feminism, politics, and war. She was strong-willed, independent-minded, and sometimes controversial. She is best remembered for her California Series, several novels and short stories dealing with the social history of California. The series includes The Splendid, Idle Forties (1902); The Conqueror (1902), which is a fictionalized biography of Alexander Hamilton; and her sensational, semi-autobiographical novel Black Oxen (1923), about an aging woman who miraculously becomes young again after glandular therapy. The latter was adapted into the film Black Oxen in 1923. Her novels often feature strong heroines who pursue independent lives, undoubtedly a reaction to her stifling married life. Atherton wrote several stories of supernatural horror, including the ghost stories "Death and the Woman", and "Crowned with One Crest", as well as "The Foghorn", and the often anthologised "The Striding Place". "The Foghorn", written in 1933, is a psychological horror story that has been compared to "The Yellow Wallpaper". W. Somerset Maugham called it a powerful story in a 1943 publication of his, Great Modern Reading.

Life seems to be out of control. We hurry into our day to face an amazing number of activities that vie for our attention. We whiz through each day, barely giving God even a perfunctory request to bless what we have already planned to do. To be sure, there are many things that entice our focus away from Christ. But those things will pass away-perhaps sooner than we think! God has called us to deeper relationship with Him-intimacy! And intimacy means that we draw close to Him. We meet with Him daily, follow His lead. We "Abide in the Vine!" Does your soul long for God? He put that longing there to draw you near to Him. Today is the perfect day to begin a more intimate relationship with your Creator. Respond to His gentle wooing-He has an incredibly fascinating journey planned for you-are you ready?
