Continuing the story begun in Julia's Hope, Leisha Kelley returns readers to the Depression era Worthham family. Life takes a turn for the worse when days before Christmas, the Wortham's neighbor, Wilametta Hammond, a mother of ten, dies. Julia and Samuel Wortham are suddenly all that stands between her children and certain death as their own father loses the will to live and care for himself, much less the children. ............ Julia finds her great faith severely tested as she tries to care for these other children in addition to her own family. Resources are already tight, and now they are at the breaking point. The flames of love and faith alone warm this ragged group as winter tightens a cold grip of fear around them. ............ ** Ms Kelley successfully paints a grim picture of the past, making readers feel her characters emotions poignantly. You get a clear reminder that times may be hard now, but they could be worse. **

This author has so much insight into the 'real' world of feelings and a great way to capture them with words. Anyone should first read 'Julia's Hope' for the prequel to this book -- both are swift and wonderful reads for any age whatsoever.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book was Awesome! The way she writes the desperate empty feelings after the death of loved ones was incredible and oh so true. She shows the empty feelings about life going on, as well as gives hope that indeed life does go on. I loved it, she has become one of my all time favorite authors and I cannot wait to read the rest of her stories.......Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A very touching story about a family whose faith was tested after the deaths of a family friend, Emma, and a neighbor, Wilametta, who left behind ten children and a husband who basically gives up all hope. Their struggle to be strong and continue to do what was right by God made this book such a unique story to read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
