Sinopsis: This story is set in the mid-twentieth century in the American Midwest—Chicago and the Sand Hills of Nebraska. It is written with great sensitivity for that time and locale. The story is told by a young woman whose family has fallen from wealth to poverty. Her younger brother, for whom she assumes responsibility, battles crippling polio, and she blames God for these misfortunes. A terrible automobile accident seems to be the crowning blow, and she leaves Chicago to start a new life, but escape is not so easy. She fights the salvation and the beautiful love that God has planned for her, but in the end He wins. Many delightful characters and an exciting mystery make this a book you won't put down.
From the Publisher:
AN INTERESTING STORY:
Earlier this year a man approached me about a novel his wife had written. Only if you are a publisher yourself will you understand the feeling of dread this awakened in me. I agreed to read it, because I know what it is to have written a book and be unable to induce any professional to look at it. At the least I hoped there might be a worthwhile plot, and with enough work it might be made usable.
To my surprise and delight I found not only a good plot and strong characters, but that the author could actually write. I accepted this book under very unusual circumstances. The author, Sherry Newcomb, is suffering from encephalitis. Her existence has come to a standstill as she gropes for the memories of her past life. Many of those memories are found in some form in this book which she typed into her daughter's computer shortly before being stricken down. On good days she vaguely remembers having written the book. On bad days she can't remember her daughter.
The book was in very rough form—really a first draft, but I considered it good enough to invest the necessary time and effort to prepare it for publication. The challenge was to imitate Sherry's style and make it the book she would have written if she had been able to complete it. I'm a busy person, and I didn't know when I'd find the time, so the Lord broke my leg—yes, literally! While I convalesced I immersed myself in the book and hammered at the unfinished parts.
I feel in my spirit that this was a work God had for me. If you are a reader of Christian novels and romances, I think you will find this book very entertaining and satisfying. I don't think there is a better book of its kind in print today.
