Have you ever thought something belonged to you, but circumstances forced you to question your ownership? Ben Stern and his grandson, Tom, farmed the land that had belonged to Ben's father. His father left instructions that the farm was to be kept in the Stern family. Ben's mother told him many times the farm was his. Tim, an older brother, had shown interest in the farm by his leaving and failing to stay in touch for so many years. Ben's ownership is put in question when his brother moves back to Kansas to teach in a college there. There had been need for Ben to open the little metal box that held all the papers to the farm-until Tim tells one of his students about the farm. The student, Blake Stoffer, had come from Philadelphia to Kansas to study agriculture first hand. He visits the farm uninvited. Ben has to stop the visits. Francine, a friend of Tom's and a student at the college, meets Blake. Both young men want to win her affections, but for two very different reasons. She feels pulled in two directions and struggles to follow what her heart is telling her. The metal box is opened and together Ben and Tim read the instructions left by their father. Each member of Ben and Sarah Stern's family were to write their memories in a book to be passed to future generations. The memories of the past, both good and bad, danced in their minds, reminding them of how the blend had served to make them the people they were. This is a story that begins slowly but builds. The reader will be challenged to let faith be the guiding force in their life.
