Rebecca Seabrooke is a commercial manager for Quentin Hollinworth’s family manor. When Quentin’s distant cousin Dana Martin Walker comes to visit the Hollinworth estate, Rebecca realizes she must confront some of her preconceived ideas about herself…and about Quentin. Dana wants to learn more about her ancestors – especially about Berrie Hamilton, who in 1852 decided to fulfill her sister-in-law’s dream of opening a school for the mentally challenged. Dana also discovers that she and her husband are expecting, and their unborn child may be like many of Berrie’s students.
It will take reading Berrie’s letters – written more than a century ago – for Dana and Rebecca to learn the importance of serving others and to realize that ultimately, even our best-laid plans are not always God’s plans.
