When Logan De Witt learns of his father’s sudden death, he returns home to the family’s dairy farm. During his stay, he discovers his mother’s struggle with finances and his younger sister’s struggle with grief. Concern for his family presses Logan to make the difficult decision to leave his career as a pastor and stay on the farm. As a way to make some extra money, he agrees to board the teacher for their local school.
Karen Millerson arrives from Chicago ready to teach high school but her position is eliminated so she accepts the role of country school teacher. Eager to put her family’s ugly past behind her, Karen begins a new career to replace the trust she lost in her own father who had been in ministry when she was a child.
Logan and Karen both sense a call from the Lord to serve him, but neither of them expected that one day they would do it together.
Can Karen learn to trust again? Will Logan lay aside his grief in exchange for God’s purpose for his life?
Reviewer: Marta Aldrighetti
Iowa, the year 1910.
Life in the small, farm village of Siler Grove is hard for the people there.
The characters are simple, well constructed and so realistic (they fight, fear, struggle, love, forgive, miss).
You will love them and through them, you can understand family, love and faith are important things in life.
The story is haunting, a page-turner and entertaining. I recommend it.
Enjoy reading it!
