Life in 1860 is not easy for Jed and his little sister, Mandy. Orphaned and homeless, the two children face numerous obstacles even before setting out on their own from Illinois to St. Louis, Missouri. Sustained only by sheer grit, determination and their love for one another, they set out to find their uncle whom they hope will give them a home. They travel mile after mile, meeting both kindly people and harmful ones, escaping peril and injury again and again.
Travel along with Jed and Mandy through heartbreak, danger and God's provision. Experience with them the fact that in spite of true hardship and genuine challenges, God forgives and welcomes into His Home anyone who will come.
