This historic home holds the keys to their destiny . . . and their hearts
Abandoned at birth, her family roots a mystery, historical museum curator Sloane Kelley has dedicated her life to making sure others know theirs. When a donor drops off a dusty old satchel, she doesn’t expect much from the common artifact . . .until she finds real treasure inside: a nineteenth-century diary. Now she’s on the hunt to find out more.
Garrett Anderson just wanted to clean out his grandmother’s historic but tumbledown farmhouse before selling it to fund her medical care. With her advancing Alzheimer’s, he can’t afford to be sentimental about the family home. But his carefully ordered plan runs up against two formidable obstacles: Sloane, who’s fallen in love with both the diaries and the house, and his own heart, which is irresistibly drawn to Sloane.
A century and a half earlier, motherless Annabelle Collins embarks with her aunt and uncle on the adventure of a lifetime: settling the prairies of Sedgwick County, Kansas. The diaries she left behind paint a portrait of life, loss, and love–and a God who faithfully carries her through it all. Paging through the diaries together takes Sloane and Garrett on a journey they never could have planned, which will change them in ways they never imagined.
This warm, beautifully written split-time novel will resonate with readers looking for stories that reveal the beauty of God’s plan for our lives, and how our actions ripple for generations.

I. Loved. This. Book.
I knew from the first few pages this would be a book I would easily devour and look forward to getting back to.
Where to begin?
This book has a couple of themes. One is family and how it doesn’t always look like we think it should.
The other is surrendering our plans to God’s plans. God’s plans are always good, Plan A. Jesus was always God’s plan, he wasn’t God’s plan B.
This book made me cry, I love when a book can touch my heart and bring tears to my eyes.
I can not wait to read more in this series, if this book was any indication of what is to come, it’s all good!!
A copy of this book was given to me. All opinions are my own.
