They Needed a Home.

She Needed a Family.

What They Found Was a Miracle.

After the great market crash of 1929, families everywhere are falling on desperate times. Raised by a grandmother who instilled a love for simple pleasures and the good, wild things growing on God's earth, Julia Wortham is determined to make a decent life for her children. Her husband, Samuel, carries the shame of losing his job, their home, and Julia's savings. He also bears the impossible burden of providing for his family.

Then circumstances force the family to seek shelter in an abandoned farmhouse--and to find mercy in a stranger's heart. Emma Graham, the elderly owner, is indeed merciful. But there are others who will stop at nothing to drive the family from the farm. Meanwhile, Sam and Julia's fears could compel them to abandon the one place they and their children long to call home.

As the unusual bond between Emma and the Worthams deepens, each person sees with increasing clarity the truth that "there is a time for everything under the sun." Filled with both joy and hardship, those times will create a harvest greater than any of them have ever known.
