A testimony of grace
Disillusioned with God after a battle to conceive, Catherine O’Hall watches the grains of her life slip between her fingers like sand. In an attempt to leave her heartache behind and find out who she is – if not a mother – she leaves Sicily and boards an aeroplane bound for South Africa. She knows that she is lost and dares God to find her.
Rebecca and Nathaniel Allwood run a feeding project on the Wild Coast of South Africa. The understanding had always been that if Becs and Tick look after the community, the community would return the favour. Until one day, a mysterious threat to their lives forces Becs to face the truth of how her family really came to own a farm surrounded by tribal land.
When Catherine arrives on the Wild Coast, lives are upturned and discoveries are made that push both families into places where only God can find them.
