Product Description

From Library Journal

Christian fiction powerhouses Oke and Bunn team up again (after Return to Harmony, Bethany, 1996) with a story of wartime romance and its tragic consequences. Martha and Harry Grimes were married for only nine weeks when he was sent overseas during World War II. When Harry is declared "missing and presumed dead," 18-year-old Martha panics at the thought of raising their expected child alone. When the baby girl is born, Martha gives it up for adoption. When Harry is found to be alive, though gravely wounded, it is too late for Martha to get their baby back. Returning home from war, Harry is bitter over his wounds and refuses to forgive Martha for her action. Though they have other children, the couple is never truly happy; their children grow up incomplete and eventually become Christians, which allows them to bring Harry and Martha back together. This is a truly unique and touching view of the effects of Christian belief on ordinary lives. It is beautifully written and should satisfy the authors' many fans.

Format: Paperback
By now, you'd think that authors-especially ones as popular as these two-would know enough to leave this story line alone. Baby is conceived under inconvenient circumstances. Baby is adopted by two stock character parents-one who dotes on her and one who stifles her. Baby grows up "unaware of her hidden past." Eventually, somehow, the truth comes out, and Baby-Turned-Young-Woman leaves to find her "real" family. And the beat goes on . . . other stock characters featured here include the bitter war hero (Harry Grimes), the uncomplaining Christian "martyr" (Joel), and the loyal, God-fearing servant (literal servant in this case: Maggie). It's ironic that the title fits so perfectly! The abundant cliches kept me at arm's length throughout the entire novel, never allowing me to become intrigued with or attached to anyone. This one simply lacks the original twists needed to stand out of the teeming "adopted kid story" crowd.

I LOVED it! It was so emotional and touching and riveting! I read the last half of it all in one night, staying up till 2:00 to finish it! I cried deeply at one time when there was something very sad. The characters are so deep and living in my mind; I felt like I was there in their own world feeling their own pain and joy. I didn't want the story to end, and I'm looking forward with great anticipation to reading the sequel! The spiritual depth and wisdom in the book is great, too! The plot is very intriguing and honest and delightful. This has become one of my favorite books, overnight! =o)
Imagine a girl in a home with riches, a loving father, a stern mother, adoring servants, but living with unease and sadness most of the time. Imagine a mother giving up her own child, and living a life without the love of her husband. Imagine a boy with a compassionate, longing heart and finally finding peace in the love of Christ. You hardly need any imagination when you read the book, because it's all there before you...I couldn't help being drawn into their lives, and didn't want to leave!

I've read some of Janette Oke's books and am trying to read many more, but this one was great! From the begining to the end it was hard to put it down, the way she shows all of the characters feelings and thoughts makes you understand everything much clearly. It is about a young girl who is growing up with the perfect life, except she feels like she doesn't belong in there. Then she begins to find out about her past, and also about God which is the best! Be sure to read "Tomorrow's Dream" also which is the sequel to this amazing story!

I Recieved this book as a present from my mother. I probably wouldn't have bought it other wise, but I'm very happy to have read it. Although the story-line can be a bit over-used, and even tiring at times, I thought that Jannette Oke and T. Davis Bunn did a truly mavelous job of making it exciting, enjoyable, and a story-line all their own. I loved how the book followed Kyle, and Joel through their entire child-hood, and the way these two authors presented the story, I would highly reccomend it to any other reader!

This was my first experience with Janette Oke's books but it will not be my last! It was such an encouraging book. From the first page I was spell bound. I could not put it down. How precious are relationships and family. But no one has mentioned it's sequel..don't miss it! I stumbled upon it myself quite by accident. "Tomorrow's Dream"...where the story continues and gets even better. Truly books to savor and share with a friend or acquaintance.
