Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
8 Hrs. 55 Min.


Kate Braestrup's life was transformed by the loss of her husband; now Kate faces the possibility that she may lose her son.

As a young mother, Kate Braestrup discovered the fierce protectiveness that accompanies parenthood. In the intervening years - through mourning her husband and the joy of remarriage and a blended family - Kate has absorbed the rewards and complications of that spirit.

But when her eldest son joins the marines, Kate is at a crossroads: Can she reconcile her desire to protect her children with her family's legacy of service? Can parents balance the joy of a child's independence with the fear of letting go?

As Kate examines the twinned emotions of faith and fear - inspired by the families she meets as a chaplain and by her son's journey toward purpose and familyhood - she learns that the threats we can't predict will rip us apart and knit us together.
