1917 – Minnesota
A rich, heartwarming story about discovering God’s love, acceptance, and healing for even the most damaged hearts
Samantha O’Brien, seventeen years old, runs away from Wisconsin to Minnesota to escape a drunkard father and broken home. She is accepted with open arms into the Klaassen family, German-Mennonites who show both love and patience to this lonely and defensive girl. Samantha’s fractured childhood and its devastating losses make it very difficult for her to accept the Klaassens’ genuine care and concern, because she’s sure nobody can love the likes of her. But with prayer, time and love, the family, including the young and handsome Adam Klaassen, begins to break through Samantha’s walls.
