Susanna Hanby is excited as she travels to Westerville, Ohio to begin her college experience.
On the way, she stops to visit her sister, Rachel, and her 6 children. As she stares with wide-opened eyes at the empty house, she fears something awful has happened. Where was her family???
As she continues her search in Westerville, she meets Johann Giere. They are as different as can be. Johann is the son of a German-American who owns a successful brewery enterprise and Susanna has very strong views as a temperance crusader!
When Susanna soon discovers that her nieces and nephews have been left in city orphanages, she and Johann begin a crusade to bring the children home.
I received this book from Thomas Nelson in exchange for my unbiased review
