About the Book

At the turn of the 20th century, Sarah Whitcome, a wife and young mother of five, is happy and content in her rural Indiana farming community. A catastrophic event thrusts her into the role of head of the household. Butting heads with social convention for a woman in 1903, Sarah faces the daunting task of maintaining their farm while finding a way to eke out a living for her family. With grit and leaning heavily on God’s grace and guidance, she puts on her full armor of faith and plows into the challenge. Sarah’s wit, wisdom and unwavering trust in her Creator make a compelling story. Read “On the Wings of a Dove” and be introduced to the Whitcomes: Sarah, her husband Henry, and their children, Abe, Luke, Josh, Zeke and Hathaway. This family’s diverse and distinctive personalities mold them into characters that jump to life from the page and steal your affections. Sprinkle in extended family, long-time friends, foes and a hired hand with a sketchy past, and you’ve got a story that will warm your heart and uplift your soul.
