The incomparable Janette Oke paints an inspiring portrait of faith and love in this moving story of a pioneer family’s struggle to stay together — and the incredible power of prayer. Angela Peterson’s family moves west because her mother has not been well and the doctor says the cooler, clear air might be easier on her lungs. So the family sell their farm and load everything in three wagons. They find a new life and new land and set out to build another farm. Mrs. Peterson’s health improves for a while. Then a winter cold puts her back in bed, and it becomes clear she has only months to live. She tries to prepare Angela for the responsibility of raising three young siblings. Angela and her older brother Thomas do their best for the children, but, as they grow, the challenges become overwhelming and she wonders if she is providing everything they need. What she doesn’t know is that an even bigger challenge is yet to come.
