Twenty years ago, Phil and Cara Winslow's youngest daughter, Grace, died in infancy—or so they thought. Now in 1935, they receive the news she may still be alive and go looking for her.

Grace resembles her grandmother in outward appearance but not in refinement. After a rough upbringing, the girl is rude, crude and a trial to her newfound siblings, except for Kevin. Horribly burned in a childhood accident, Kevin relates to the outcast Winslow. And when Grace runs off, Kevin comes out of seclusion to follow. Can both find the Lord and true love when they're out in the world and on their own? Will their paths ever lead them home?

In this newest book in the House of Winslow saga, Morris delivers an unusual and interesting plot that's marred by a few trite and simplistic elements. (Jan., 320 pp., $12.99)
