This story was such a blessing to my daughter and I. Katie’s family experiences hardships but lean on each other and their faith to get through. They show a mean gentleman so much compassion and grace. This story brought me to tears as an adult. Loved every minute of the book and so did my daughter.

The grasshoppers can't destroy God

I’ve only finished the first 4 chapters so far and I’m already just loving this book. The grasshoppers have just come and eaten the family’s Kansas wheat crop. The chapter gave a very good description of what it might have felt like as a child, but it is met with a firm faith in God and that God’s Word holds the answer to any problem we might have. Looking forward to enjoying the rest of this book.

I loved this sweet book. Katie and her family move to America from Ukraine to have freedom to practice their Mennonite religion. I love the lessons of love, patience, faith and kindness taught as they go through many hard times together.
