The summer of 1932 was a troublesome one for Jack Alder.
His grandmother's health was fairing poorly, they were having a difficult time making ends meet during the Great Depression, and the town banker was threatening foreclosure on the family farm. The future seemed dismal and help was nowhere in sight. But Grandmama's faith in God brought renewed hope in the form of a childhood toy lost decades ago in an abandoned cave; an antique toy that could earn enough to drive the wolf from their door.
It would take a journey across three rural counties to get them there...as well as trials and tribulations galore. For an elderly woman, an eight-year-old boy, and a teenaged girl traveling in a rickety pickup truck, such a quest seemed doomed to fail. Would faith and friendship, desperation, and sheer will be enough? Would they be able to reach their prize and, ultimately, their salvation? Would they be able to find Grandmama's precious china doll in time?

Fantastic story 👏
This is one of my favorite stories by Ronald Kelly. So heartfelt and entertaining. The narrator, Pam Dougherty was absolutely fabulous 👌 Her voice brought life to all the characters and kept me drawn to the story. I highly recommend this to all lovers of spectacular story telling! BRAVO 👏

Wonderful, Warm, and a Tiny Bit Supernatural
This story took a little bit to get into, but even though it started a little slow, the narration was a pleasure to listen to. The narrator did the characters well and her voice was nice.
The writing was classic Kelly, but without the killing. Just awesome!
