Forsaken Yet Loved When Lana Hoppers mother was killed in a horse riding accident, she wished she had been the one to die. Because she was so ugly, she figured her daddy wished it too. Bart Hopper no longer treated Lana like a good father since his wife was no longer there to take up for Lana. He began treating her like a male employee on his horse farm and as a cook and servant in the house. When he brought home a new wife and stepdaughter, life became more miserable for Lana. Just because she was not beautiful like her new relatives, they too treated Lana like a slave. Jessica, the stepsister, constantly pointed out Lanas ugly looks to everyone at school, especially to the boys. But not everyone detested her. Her hero, Clint Ellington, one of her classmates, was an exception. He went to the farm to apply for work. He stopped Bart from beating Lana unmercifully. Because of his toughness and willingness to work hard, he was hired and worked great with Lana. They became great friends. Then Bart fell off a horse and broke his neck. After graduation, Lana left town. A stranger took her in and introduced her to the Bible and God. Her life changed in numerous ways. She became prettier, happier, and full of life. She began to wish for a loving husband. Could her childhood companion, Clint Ellington, be the one?
