Details: Product Description From the heart-rending challenges of WW II - to the dream of home and family! Far too soon after their wedding, the call of war had separated Jerry and Marjie Macmillan and plunged them into the most difficult challenge of their lives. Jerry's dramatic survival during the sinking of his aircraft carrier and his reunion with Marjie and their new daughter signalled their new beginning. But while the Macmillan family has much to celebrate in Jerry's safe return to a hero's welcome, they must faced the reality of his imminent return to the navy. With Jerry's father's health continuing to deteriorate and winter setting in, something must be done to keep the farm going if Jerry is not given a special discharge. Must it be sold as his father has concluded? And where will Marjie and the baby go? Difficulties on the homefront and orders to return to service are pressing in on them when near-tragedy strikes the Macmillan farm. Jerry and Marjie are faced with the potential of an ever greater disaster. Will their newly found faith be strong enough to carry them through? With all the characters you came to love in Far From the Dream, the charming second story in THE GENTLE HILLS. From School Library Journal Grade 8 Up?War hero Jerry Macmillan returns to his aging father's Midwest farm and the arms of his wife Marjie and brand-new baby in this second "Gentle Hill" book. Various crises and changes challenge the new family, which is sustained by its deep faith in God. Old Ben Macmillan is seriously injured by their bull, decides to give the farm to his son, falls in love with a widow and remarries; Jerry's best friend, Chester, becomes estranged from his father and gets engaged; Marjie's brother battles alcoholism. This book exhibits solid writing, well-developed characters, deep sincerity, and a decidedly old-fashioned plot; its bedrock, however, is religious faith and the central role God plays in these character's lives.?Kathy Fritts, Jesuit High School, Portland, OR Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.
