In this 2nd book of The Country Chronicles series, the Worthams and the Hammonds are tested once again with the world on the brink of war. After the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, Robert Wortham and the three oldest Hammond boys head off to fight, and the families are left behind to deal with their fears, and can only pray for peace, strength, and a greater understanding of God in this conflict that could forever change the future of both families.

I enjoyed this story; although it had its shar

This is the fourth in a series about the Worthen family. You have to be fond of the people to stay with it. I'm impressed with their faith, frugality, and ingenuity. They have a great love for God and their fellow men.

After waiting three weeks for Crow's Lake at the library, I realized I'd already read it, so I looked for something else to take my mind away and chose the next two books by Leisha Kelly, giving her a second chance.

I like reading her books but the last one I'd read, Rorey's Secret started to get monotonous with the worrying so I hadn't planned to continue reading the series but since I didn't have another title in mind and these were handy, I started Rachel's Prayer and it starts out as WWI begi

This is my new favorite series of books. Oh how I came to love these two families who eventually merged into one. Each book in this series teaches strong Christian principles without becoming preachy. I love the lesson of learning to trust in the Lord regardless of the circumstances or how hard life is treating you. Not only did I love the lessons but I came to love each of these characters with all their flaws. I am only saddened that there will be no more stories of the Wortham family. Now all ...more

I liked this book much better than the previous one in the series. Now that I've gotten all the characters straight, I can identify with them more closely & want to know what happens next. It gave me much insight into the feelings of ordinary people during WWII when so many young men were going off to fight, many not returning. I was surprised at how resourceful rural women were such a short time ago when medical treatment wasn't readily available or was too expensive.

3.5 stars better than previous books in the series but not as good as Julia's Hope. This would have been 4 stars but George Hammonds antics made me want to throw the book against the wall. Enough was enough..... I still enjoyed seeing the characters grow and change.

I enjoy read Leisha Kelly's books. This one is the 2nd in the Country Road Chronicles. It is set right after the attack of Pearl Harbor. The book deals with how people are coping with WWII and their love ones going off to fight.

This is not a feel good series, but an uplifting one of God's faithfulness to our needs and our faith in Him. Good Christian fiction.

The best yet, at least in terms of spiritual issues. This book addresses some of the most often asked questions about God. Aside from that, the story itself is a good one. Well worth your time.

Liked this, very simple honest characters. Part of a series, I would like to read the other books too.

This is another fine work by Leisha Kelly. This book has a somber tone since it deals with the World War II time period. Ms. Kelly's strong Christian faith is also very clear in this title.
