Jacob and the children are living on the prairie during the winter of 1918.
There is a war raging in Europe. At home, influenza in making many
people ill and killing some of them. Anna is leaving to move into
town so she can finish her education and work with the town doctor.
As she leaves, she gives her brother Caleb a blank journal with instructions
to write down everything that happens around the farm. That shouldn't
be too hard. According to Caleb, nothing ever happens. How
could he have known how wrong he would be? How could any of them
have known how a stranger will change their lives forever?
