The words love, hope, and dreams are synonymous with family-at least that's what Eugene and Annie Wyatt believe. As they raise two sons on their horse and cattle farm outside of Louisville, Kentucky, life has a way of testing that love, crushing hope, and shattering dreams. In the face of the Ku Klux Klan, a thousand-year flood, and a wayward son, the family's strength is strained to its limit and yet able to weather each storm. But when their faith is put to an unimaginable test with the world engulfed in war for a second time, all hope appears to be lost. Sometimes God plants a seed of hope so strong within a mother's heart that nothing on earth can snatch it away. Not even death itself.
