Henri's Blessings

In the early 1800’s, life on the homestead was trying at best. For Henrietta, orphaned at thirteen, and left to care for her two younger siblings, life is especially hard. For the past few years, her main focus has been to simply survive and provide for her brother and sister. A tragic circumstance sends Henrietta on the run, fleeing the only home she had ever known with two children in tow. With no one to help and no where to turn, Henrietta is left wondering if she will ever find peace.
Levi is a God fearing man, facing a tragedy of his own. His life in tatters, he leaves his own home with young daughter Emma. He heads west with the toddler, heading for his parent’s homestead to make a new life. Along the way, Levi encounters a pitiful group of siblings. He is burdened with a strong desire to help them, but he is still dealing with his own loss. Can Levi’s love for God overcome his own worries? Can he help his new acquaintances find blessings in a life filled with turmoil? Can it help him overcome his own grief and discover new blessings for himself?
