Julie explores the miracle of faith against a background of small-town America coming of age, with a story-and a heroine-unforgettably powerful and alive. Julie Wallace was only eighteen when her family moved to a flood-prone Pennsylvania town in 1934. Here her father, risking their life savings, took over a struggling newspaper, and Julie began fighting to fulfill her dreams. She found herself taking sides as battle lines were drawn between desperate steelworkers and the owners of the mills-and being torn as two young men divided her loyalty and her heart. Then a devastating catastrophe became the ultimate test of courage and commitment-and Julie’s special strength would come from love.
