Julia DeSmit can't wait for her life to begin. After her
mother leaves when Julia is nine years old, she's raised
by an unassuming, gentle father and a saintly, matriarchal
grandmother until her father dies just as Julia is
becoming a young adult.
On the cusp of womanhood, Julia
feels jaded by her circumstances and longs for a new
identity. College seems like the perfect place to start
over. But when Julia makes a mistake that will change her
life forever, she returns to her grandmother's farm,
defeated and convinced of her own worthlessness. Only
through the gentle prodding of her loving grandmother does
Julia begin to accept the imprint her childhood has left
on her life and look for hope in a loving God who longs to
make all things new.
