Rachel Sheridan's parents are missionaries in Africa and it is the only home she's ever known, but influenza strikes, killing many people in her village including her parents. She has wicked, greedy neighbors who take her in, but they convince her to join in their criminal scheme telling her someone may die if she doesn't help. Rachel is sent to England where she wants to tell the truth, but she is afraid the truth will cost someone his life.
All she wants to do is return to Africa and reopen her father's hospital. Will she find the patience, courage, and strength to return home? Will she be able to break free from the Pritchards' schemes?

1. You can order books for your own children from our online Usborne book party and the proceeds will go to purchase books for the NICU.

Usborne is really good to their hostesses, and they have great board books for babies. Click on the link: Usborne book sale to benefit NICU The books you order will be shipped directly to your home. You can then give them to your children, grandchildren, nieces, or nephews. The free books from the hostess benefits go to the NICU. Remember to get some summer reading books for your family.
2. We have set up a baby registry at Amazon.com with many books listed for the NICU babies. Some of these books only cost $2.50. Many of these are classics that all children should have.
