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.
