Bethany Colburn is finally allowed to court, and Everett Foster is ready to confess his love for her. As the outside world closes in on the Land, a new man arrives in the village of Good Springs. He brings charm Bethany has never encountered and illness the Land has never known. While the medicinal power of the gray leaf tree is put to the test and the Colburn family’s strength is stretched thin, Bethany must choose between the love of her life and the intriguing new man.
There is wisdom in the advice of those who've gone before us.
Why the author wrote this book:
My goal was to use the relationships in the books to exhibit the life of God being lived out in physical circumstances. My inspiration for this three-book series came from Ephesians 1:3-14 and the glorious spiritual blessings outlined therein. The first book, The Land Uncharted, explores the theme of God's sovereignty ("in love He predestined us..."). The second book, Uncharted Redemption, explores the theme of our redemption in Christ ("in Him we have redemption..."). And the third book, Uncharted Inheritance, explores the theme of our inheritance in Him ("In Him we have obtained an inheritance..."). While Christians will recognize the spiritual content, the scripture references in the story, and the Christian behavior of the characters, no characters come to faith in the stories or use faith to overcome obstacles.
