Thomas Ollenburger, a young Mennonite from Kansas has graduated from college in Boston, where he has stayed for 6 years with a family friend. He is on his way to find God's will for his life. His father and stepmother hope, that will be back home in Kansas, and Thomas has a drawing to Boston. Perhaps the drawing has something to do with a lovely young lady named Daphne, the sister of a college friend.

Thomas spends several months in Kansas, and renews a friendship with a young Mennonite girl, Belinda, that he went to school with, and now he has mixed feelings about returning to Boston. However a letter from Daphne assuring him there is a job for him at her father's newspaper influences Thomas to return to Boston.

Watch the story unfold as Thomas returns to Boston, works hard and is promoted at the newspaper, and finds the truth. Truth about his work with the Presidential candidate, truth about his walk with God, truth about his job, truth about Daphne. Thomas grows up before your eyes, into a young man who knows God's will for his life.

A faith building book, as side stories about Belinda, and her family and their struggles, Daphne and her struggles to find faith, and Thomas' own struggles to find truth, will keep your attention. Another wonderful story from Kim Vogel Sawyer. 347 pages $13.99 US
