With the closing of the Calder Springs timber mill, most of the town’s residents are left unemployed. Several families, realizing the lack of a future in the small mountain town, soon decide to relocate.

But not the Harrigan family. Although John has lost his job at the mill, he and his wife, Julia, make the decision to stay in their beautiful home with their twins daughters. Eastern-educated Julia searches for a way to bring business and people back to Calder Springs, a task she feels God leading her to accomplish. Will her faith and determination carry her through the challenges and setbacks she’ll face?

    " Janeete Oke is one of my favorite author's. I am not baptist but I love the religeous elements of her story. It also helps that they are historical fiction, my favorite! I always feel like I am part of her stories. This one was no exception! "
