When Nel Stewart returns home due to the sudden death of her mother, she realizes her beloved father, Jakob, is struggling with dementia. With the reappearance of a high-school sweetheart, deliveries from Ukraine addressed to her, and the discovery of a mysterious, vintage aquamarine gemstone, Nel senses God is pulling her into the past to restore their faith and their futures. Told partially through Jakob's flashbacks of fleeing gecide-ridden eastern Europe at the turn of the twentieth century, the vel combines elements of mystery, history, faith and romance to reveal how God redeems the broken years ... and our future.
