Series: Finding Faith
Kit Matthews has waited for her missionary, Adam Bridger, for two long years. Just as they are getting to know each other again, Kit experiences feelings that she cannot ignore promptings that take her halfway around the world.
Kit s soul is stirred by the plight of the orphans of Romania, and the connection she feels is compounded by her own abandonment at birth. Kit meets a charismatic Romanian medical student, Marcel, who shares her desire to help the children. When she challenges Marcel to learn about the gospel, she has no idea of the doors she s opened.
As she deals with turmoil in Romania, Kit receives disturbing news from home: Adam is involved with someone else, and her own family is disintegrating! Kit begins to fear that she will never be part of an eternal family.
Kit struggles to have hope that God is mindful of His children, especially her, and she must make a choice of creating a new life in Romania, or returning to America to pick up the pieces of her old one.
I really enjoyed the first in this series but found this book to be a bit laborious to read.
It was still fun to read about the characters from the first book.
