Lexie Logan never expected to be sent back in time to 1857 Kansas territory or to be picked up on the prairie by homesteaders. Her twenty-first-century clothing and strong anti-slavery opinions create discomfort and disruption. Lexie wonders if she will ever return to the future, or if she must prepare herself to face the dangers of the Civil War.
Lexie Logan thought she could run from God…but like the Prophet Jonah, she soon faced a storm of epic proportions.
Lexie knows God has called her to the mission field of Guatemala as a missionary’s wife, but she has no intention of obeying. She has her own dreams: she wants to complete a Master’s degree program in music and to play violin for the Topeka Symphony Orchestra.
As she waits to speak to an advisor, she pillows her head on her arms in the library of Kansas State University in June 2014, and wakes up in the back of a Conestoga wagon in June 1857, four years before the Civil War. Kansas is not yet a state, women do not have the vote, and slavery divides the nation. She is taken in by the Bells, who are homesteading in the newly opened territory.
While she lives with this family, God teaches her many things about obedience, trust, faithfulness, and love, but the most important lesson she learns is that there is no place in time or space where she can go to run from God, and there is nothing that can separate her from His love.
When given a second chance, will she obey though there is risk involved, or will she play it safe and settle for second-best?
