Book 3 of the Little Eli Series. A sequel to By the Fields of Fish Creek.

Eli follows his family down the train aisle, stepping off the metal treads onto the depot platform in Stuarts Draft, Virginia. Fresh from the sandy flatlands of Kansas, eleven-year-old Eli can't wait to see the farm Dad bought at the foot of White Hill.

Still small for his age, Eli dreads starting school in the giant building on Main Street. He dreads walking up the church aisle to sit with a row of boys he's never seen. Everything is different here.

Change is in the air. Electricity comes to the farm. Harvesting is done with tractors and newfangled equipment. And young men begin bringing Eli's sisters home from singings. Eli's world is stretched wide open until he hardly recognizes himself. Through it all he learns the weight of responsibility resting upon a farmer's shoulders, especially with money being tight.

Will the family be able to keep up the farm payments? Will Eli find acceptance as a harvest boy? And will he find answers for his many questions about God?
