    A story of faith and family

    What an incredible little book! This book is a real page turner. Faith and family come together to inspire and provide refreshing hope in dark times. The setting is in the early days of World War II before the US in involved. In 1941 a missionary wife and her six children receive permission to travel to Africa to be with their beloved father. En route the Germans sink the Zamzam. But despite continuous shelling, not one soul is lost! Mother and her six children board a lifeboat that sinks beneath them. 'Just remember that Jesus loves you,' she comfortingly tells her children. I highly recommend this book. Well written with great narrative. You will not be disappointed.
