The long-awaited Graduation Day is fastly approaching for Josh and his friends. Soon they'll be done with school and they'll leave the little schoolhouse behind forever. Josh's friends all have big plans for their lives, many are going on to college, and his best friend Willie is headed to Bible College in preparation for mission work. But Josh still doesn't have an answer when people ask him what his plans are. He's considered several things, but hasn't felt God leading him towards anything in particular yet.
Graduation day comes and goes, and while his friends all set out to fulfill their plans and dreams, the still undecided and restless Josh is left behind in his hometown. Noticing that his Grandpa and Uncle Charlie aren't getting around as well as they used to, Josh decides to go home to the farm to help with the planting and harvesting for the year. Finally at peace, Josh feels this is where he should be while he waits for God's guidance for further plans in his life.
I don't want to say any more for fear of giving too much of the storyline away. Quite a few events take place in this book, it covers several years of Josh's life. A new family member is born, old friends come to visit (with some shocking news!), and Grandpa comes up with a crazy idea that could change everything at the farm. Through it all, Josh tries to trust God and seek His will for his life.
I would say this book is probably my favorite in the series. As Josh has matured, the books have as well. I really enjoyed it, and it seemed that I could really relate to Josh and some of his struggles. This series continues to be one that would be great for all ages!
