This is an epic of independence and devotion, of hardship and fulfillment, of a woman so strong that knowing her could change your life.When ten-year-old Dinah Kirkham saw her father leave their Manchester home in the middle of the night, she asked when he would be back. "Soon," he replied. But he never came back. On that night in 1829, John Kirkham laid the foundation of his daughter's certainty that the only person Dinah could ever really trust was herself.
From that day forward, Dinah worked to support her family, remaining devoted to their welfare even in the face of despair and grinding poverty. Then one day she heard a new message; a new purpose ignited in her heart, and new life opened up before her.
"This ambitious novel will appeal to anyone interested in a sensitive examination of the roots of religious feeling."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
