"James turned Eleanore to face him, and she crumbled in his arms, sobbing against his chest while the empty ache of losing her baby swirled into the heartbreak of having fear and secrecy shatter the perfect happiness she’d found in embracing the gospel."
Is it possible that the peace the Barrington family has found in their new Iowa surroundings will be destroyed by persecution born of ignorance and fueled by blind bigotry? Will personal sorrow and loss stretch their faith to the breaking point? And how can James find the courage to give his heart to God—to trust Him in his hour of greatest need?
"You’re a good man, James. I know it and God knows it. But I wonder what kind of fear is wrapped around your heart, with pride there to protect it? And don’t tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about. I, of all people, know your heart. What are you afraid of, James? That if you wholly give your heart to God, He will hurt it?"
Join the Barringtons as they continue their odyssey of faith—a journey of love and spiritual testing with unimaginable eternal consequences. [from publisher's web site]
