Overview

Book 3 of Daughter's of Fortune. In the summer of 1942, on three different continents, the daughters of newspaper tycoon Keagan Hayes are caught in chaos within and without. Though all have come to a personal faith, they are thrown into physical and emotional trauma that severely tests that faith. In Los Angeles, Jackie's Japanese-American husband is sent to an internment camp. In the Philippines, Blair is captured by the Japanese and imprisoned. In Russia, Cameron is arrested and forced to leave the country. They each struggle to find strength to endure the hardships inflicted upon them and to maintain their confidence in the God who is writing the pages of their lives.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This January release reads much like any secular guide to squeezing a dime; the difference is that readers are urged to take those two-for-one canned goods they score with a coupon and donate them to a poor family, or contribute the money they save buying bulk to charity. "It's not just to save money to make your budget better, but it's also to share God's blessing with others," says Julie Smith, Bethany's managing editor of adult fiction. But don't expect the book to be filled with scripture verses justifying the purchase of generic aspirin and gently used toasters. Says Smith, "If it's practical and makes good common sense, Ellie isn't going to try to find a biblical reason for it.
Romantic Times
During World War II, the three daughters of Cecilia Hayes have found love and heartbreak. Jacqueline is married to and pregnant with the child of a Japanese-American now interned in a prison camp in the States. She plans to join her husband in the camp. Cameron is a news correspondent in Russia. She is covering the Eastern front and risking her own freedom, as well as her beloved's life, in a romance with a Russian doctor. Blair has flown around the world to the Japanese-occupied Philippines in search of the husband she betrayed with her lies. All three women find danger, tragedy and triumph on their chosen paths. Each looks with hope Toward the Sunrise. Judith Pella's deft touch with characterization provides a historically rich and riveting tale in this third installment of the DAUGHTERS OF FORTUNE series.
