Twelve-year-old Olive Brenneman doesn't know any home except California, since she moved there with her parents when she was too young to remember. What she does know is that life where her cousins and grandparents live in eastern Ohio definitely seems superior to hers. She dreams of the fun times at family reunions and the seemingly carefree lives her relatives talk about. In contrast, her life on a mountainside in dry California seems difficult and unexciting.
But slowly, Olive's perspective begins to change. She begins to understand that she is experiencing things in California that she would know nothing about if her family had stayed in Ohio. And most important, she realizes that God called her family there and where God places us is always the best place to be. Join Olive as she and her family experience excitement, fear, and tragedy in their California home.
