HOMEWARD MY HEART

Author(s): 
World War II is over, but three sisters, Cameron, Jackie and Blair, are left with scars that will take time to heal. Cameron, a foreign correspondent, is separated from her Russian husband by the Iron Curtain, and she is desperate to get him back.

Jackie, a war widow and the mother of a lovely daughter, can't find a man willing to look at a woman who was once married to a "Jap," even if he was an American war hero. And Blair, who was tortured by the Japanese while pregnant and suffered a miscarriage, has difficulty accepting her half-Japanese niece.

The sisters band together in a common cause—freeing Cameron's husband, Alex, from a Russian prison. The project is fraught with danger and surprises, but the sisters find fresh trust and love for one another—and in God—as each challenge is met. Will their faith carry them over the final hurdle and bring them home together and safe?

Pella delivers another exciting installment of the Daughters of Fortune series. A plot point or two doesn't feel quite right, but the intriguing situations and the interaction between the sisters make this a captivating read. (Nov., 464 pp., $13.99)
