The Horst family is trying to adjust to their new home in Kentucky. Joanna finds the checkered hills beautiful and the people friendly. But their new house is too small, it lacks running water, and it has an outhouse instead of a bathroom. Their nearest neighbors live in tiny houses that in some cases can only be called shacks. Floods and wildfires threaten the community. But far worse than these are the strife, gambling, drinking, and murder that plague the wretched lives of the people around them.

When Joanna is tempted with discouragement or discontent, she reminds herself of their reason for moving. God has sent their family to tell the people about Jesus and the true peace and joy that only He can give.

This story is based on the actual experiences of a family who served in the 1950s at a little mission church in Kentucky, operated under the Allegheny Conference.
