Elizabeth grabbed the nearest pencil and slid into the receiver’s chair. Her mind could barely interpret the horrific message coming over the radio.
“QUOTE—AIR RAID ON PEARL HARBOR—THIS IS NO DRILL—UNQUOTE—HEAVY GUNFIRE—US FLEET SUNK—THOUSANDS DEAD—SK.”
December 7, 1941, Whittier, Alaska—Elizabeth Ames, cryptographer, finds herself caught up in a chaotic and terrifying world far from her home in Seattle. She had set sail for Alaska in hopes of saving her marriage, but that seemed almost impossible while her husband still blamed her for the death of their son. Riddled by guilt and fiercely angry with a God who would allow her baby to die and her husband to run away, Elizabeth eventually opens her grandmother’s well-marked Bible. Amid the turmoil of her life and the uncertainty of a world at war, Elizabeth discovers a God who has a plan for her life. But when it comes to matters of the heart, she finds it difficult to turn over her destiny to Him.
