From the Inside Flap:

"How did your meeting with the Semi-Centennial Committee go, Moeder?" my son Jakob asks.
"They want me to write down my story for a book they're making about the history of our city. Everything I can remember about leaving the Netherlands fifty years ago and settling here."
"You're going to do it, I hope."
"I don't know . . ." I pick up my knitting and wind the yarn around my fingers. The needles whisper softly as they slide against each other, as if telling secrets. "I'm not sure if they only want to know what happened during those years and all the hardships we faced, or if I should tell them the whole truth."
Jakob blinks. "What do you mean?"
I don't reply. What I'm asking is: Should I tell the truth about all the times I despaired of God's love? The times when I doubted and my faith was shaken and I turned away from Him in anger? Nay, sometimes it was more than anger--it was rage. Those feelings are part of my story, too, the part I've kept hidden all these years. Do they belong in this book they are making about our past?

From the Back Cover:

Haunted by the Unknowns of Their Pasts, Two Women Search for Answers Along the Shores of Lake Michigan

Chicago socialite Anna Nicholson retreats to the Hotel Ottawa in Holland, Michigan, after breaking her engagement with her wealthy fiancE. Filled with questions about her newfound faith and troubled by a recurring nightmare, Anna finds solace in Derk Vander Veen, a seasonal hotel worker who plans to go into the ministry.
Prompted by a request from her son, Geesje de Jonge begins to sift through memories of emigrating from the Netherlands almost fifty years ago. As she writes them down for the Semi-Centennial anniversary of the town's settlement, her story takes on a life of its own as she honestly and painfully recalls her regrets, doubts, hardships, and joys. Her story captivates Derk, who sees similarities between Geesje and Anna, and wishes to bring the two together.
Past and present collide as Anna and Geesje seek clarity, but neither expects the revelations that await them.
