Kate O'Connell is tired of hearing her mother cry every night, she is tired of the sadness that has been in her mother's eyes since the death of her father, and she is tired of how hard her mother has to work to try and pay the rent. So she comes up with a plan to ask the pastor to pray for a new husband for her mother. Little does Kate know that this prayer will change her whole life forever. How Kate copes with three new siblings, being moved to a farm in the the wilds of northwest Wisconsin, and a mysterious stranger that seemingly disappears and reappears at random is a mystery well worth looking into.
