    1. Esther returned a 4*Gutenberg: gutenberg/ebooks/7415Opening: Wiltshire looks large on the map of England, a great green county, yet it never appears to be a favourite one to those who go on rambles in the land. At all events I am unable to bring to mind an instance of a lover of Wiltshire who was not a native or a resident, or had not been to Marlborough and loved the country on account of early associations.

It seems that every generation has an individual who sees [...]

Having never heard of the author before I really didn't know what I was in for. I was only drawn to the book because of the word 'Shepherd' in the title, and having recently learned about Jesus being the good shepherd and laying his life down for his flock, I wanted to see if this book could tell me anything about anybody who took th [...]
