Lanie Freeman and her siblings have survived the Great Depression without their father. They are convinced that he has been unjustly imprisoned.

Lanie’s strong-willed sister, Maeva, runs away to Los Angeles to find the one woman in a city of thousands who can prove their father’s innocence. Nothing Lanie says can deter Maeva from her mission.

Even as her family seems to be unraveling, Lanie’s dream of writing becomes a reality. Lanie is on the verge of becoming a published author. Amid the excitement, she still feels a deep longing for something more, a yearning for love, a home, and a family of her own. When two suitors propose, it does nothing to quiet her heart.

Lanie resigns herself to leave Maeva’s safety and her father’s future in God’s hands. But can she trust God to show her the right man and the right plan for her life?
