Wonderful story. It captures you right from the beginning and keeps you going to the end, leaving you ready for the final book in the series.
Change was sweeping through the land...and through their lives as well!
World War II had changed the American landscape and left its mark on Jerry and Marjie Macmillan. Jerry had nearly lost his life during the sinking of his aircraft carrier, and his family had nearly lost their farm when his father's health failed. Now, as the Macmillans settle into their responsibilities as owners of the family farm, they hope the mountain of difficulties has been left far behind them. But the challenges they must face together on the home front prove to have a power all their own. The calamaity of a thunderstorm, a sudden illness, and the announcement of a loved one missing in action during the invasion of Sicily bring tests of faith and fortitude. However, the greatest challenge comes unexpectedly with the brief visit of an American missionary who escaped the Japanese takeover of the island of Borneo. His amazing story causes the Macmillans and their closest friends to reexamine what they really want in life. They had answered the call of their country, but how will they respond to a call that transcends flesh and blood?
