It’s 1922 in a small, rural town in Northeast Washington State. World War I has ripped away Grace Halstad’s hopes, her dreams, and her faith. She clings to the past and the husband she lost. The last letter he wrote lays unopened in a carved wooden box, tying her to the life she once knew.
Her hard work has turned their rambling white home into a boarding house to provide for her four-year-old daughter and herself. Can she loose the grip of grief and embrace life again? It will take a miracle for Grace to feel the same hope and joy she did at nineteen when her husband carried her across the threshold of Halstad House.
Halstad House will be released autumn 2019.
