Set on the home front during World War II, this inspirational romance is told through the eyes of Louisa, a twenty-three-year-old illegal German refugee who is sent to the dusty copper mining town of Copper Springs, Arizona. She takes up residence with the Gordon family, headed by Pastor Robert Gordon, who was a seminary classmate of her mentor, Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

Louisa struggles to find her place in the American community and within the pastorís family. She forms a quick and deep bond with Robertís young son William, who is deaf, but has a more difficult time with stern Aunt Martha and the taciturn pastor himself, who is smarting from his wifeís abandonment of the family years before.

The richest man in town is also German. Both Louisa and young William are instinctively wary of him, which proves correct as the whole town becomes embroiled in Nazi espionage.  (Suzanne Woods Fisher, contributing editor of Christian Parenting Today)
