Nothing has been the same for Samuel and Julia Wortham since the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. All around them young men are enlisting in the service, leaving the safety of the rural community that has sheltered the Wortham family since the Great Depression.
Now their own beloved son Robert has gone to fight for his country, along with three of the Hammond boys. Julia's heart aches for the boys, while Robertís girlfriend, Rachel Gray, offers a prayer that changes the lives of all who hear it. Those left behind struggle to find their places and Godís plan amidst the chaos of war.
As the letters from Robert and the Hammond boys slow to a stop, can those at home find Godís peace?
