Somewhere a Song
War transforms men and women anywhere near its carnage. The three Keagan sisters, whose stories began in Written in the Wind, now experience the more harrowing phase of WWII. Family disputes wane as Blair Hayes struggles to survive the devastation of Manila, Baatan, and Corregidor. Facing the penetrating panic and anti-Japanese prejudice of family, friends, and society, Jacki Hayes and Sam are determined to painfully fight for their love of country and anyone responding to wartime threats. Cameron Hayes, a wartime correspondent, loses the loves of her life. Russia now faces Germany’s renewed attacks, devastating to all involved. What will be recovered?
Just where does one find peace in a world gone mad with its own destructive drives? Where is God in it all? Does He allow it to happen? Does he ask for more or less from those He calls to himself? Judith Pella superbly interweaves the struggles of the Hayes sisters with human and divine love, so real it is palpable. As we share their riveting lives, their thoughts, feelings, and amazing transformation become ours.
