Julie Wallace is just eighteen in 1934 when her father risks their life savings on a struggling newspaper and moves the family to a flood-prone Pennsylvania town.
It is here a young woman's convictions take firm root, as Julie finds herself taking sides when battle lines are drawn between desperate steelworkers and the mill owners who control their lives. And it is here where her heart and her loyalties are torn, divided between two special men. But when a devastating natural catastrophe becomes the ultimate test of courage and commitment, Julie's remarkable inner strength will come to the fore -- a strength born of faith and love.
And don't miss Catherine Marshall's beloved bestseller: Christy

Inspired, like Christy, by Catherine Marshall's own life, Julie explores the miracle of faith against a background of small-town America coming of age, with a story--and a heroine--unforgettably powerful and alive.
Julie Wallace was only seventeen when her family moved to a flood-prone Pennsylvania town in 1934. Here her father, risking their life savings, took over a struggling newspaper, and Julie began fighting to fulfill her dreams. She found herself taking sides as battle lines were drawn between desperate steelworkers and the owners of the mills--and being torn as two young men divided her loyalty and her heart.
