Doug and Lydia Wheeler are excited about the birth of their first child in 1923, who arrives six weeks early following a violent storm that ravages their small community. After a second son is born, the young parents are overjoyed with the birth of their third child, a daughter, whom they lose three months later to SIDS. Their faith in God is shaken to its depth as they struggle with the unanswered question why.
You'll soon feel as though you know them personally, and will come to love the good hearted folks in Northridge, as you laugh at the antics of the small town's busy body, Ina Potts, and her secret admirer, Russell. You'll enjoy the light hearted moments with neighbor, Georgia Baker, when she drives to the big city for the first time, and as you witness Lydia's first and last driving lesson.
Grow with Doug and Lydia, as they gain wisdom and experience healing that comes through an unexpected turn of events.
