Description of Rachel's Prayer by Leisha Kelly
War threatened to pull them apart. Hope bound them together. Nothing has been the same for Samuel and Julia Wortham since the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. All around them young men are enlisting for the service, leaving the safety of the rural community that has sheltered the Wortham family since the Great Depression. Now their own beloved son Robert has gone to fight for his country, along with three of the Hammond boys. Julia's heart aches for the boys while Robert's girlfriend, Rachel Gray, offers a prayer that changes the lives of all who hear it. Those left behind struggle to find their place and God's plan amidst the chaos of war. As the letters from Robert and the Hammond boys slow to a stop, can those at home find God's peace? Leisha Kelly is the author of Julia's Hope, Emma's Gift, Katie's Dream, and, most recently, Rorey's Secret, the first book in the Country Road Chronicles series. She and her husband, K.J., live in Clayton, Illinois, and have two children.
