They tried everything they could to save the land they loved . . .
But could their deepest dreams still come true?

Before Rebecca Thornton arrived at Douloo Station, she knew it would be very different from her beloved Boston. But she hadn't imagined what troubles lurked ahead for her and her new husband, Daniel, or how their faith would be tested.

Nearly a year after moving to Queensland, Rebecca finds herself in the middle of a terrible drought. Despite working tirelessly to save the ranch, Rebecca and Daniel's efforts-and their prayers-can't stop tragedies from coming. As the drought worsens, Daniel's heart becomes as parched as the flat prairie around him. And though she's surrounded by family, Rebecca's dreams of a happy life seem to be slipping away.

For the Love of the Land is a moving story of hope, prayer, and trust in the One who always provides. For just when all seems lost, out of the ashes comes a faith that can never be destroyed.

"An engaging novel that clearly shows the redeeming power of love and forgiveness."-Lauraine Snelling, author, Red River of the North series
