In the global convulsion of World War II, millions of people find their lives in upheaval. From the homeland to the frontlines, American citizens are suddenly diverted off their chosen paths. They'll each fight a war - in their own way and with varying success, but always bound by the same cause. Can they see God's hand - and perhaps find romance - amidst the chaos? Under the community war efforts banner C for Victory, Ruth Sinclair works alongside Jim Griffin. He shares her faith and stirs her heart, but Ruth is officially committed to a fiance who is fighting oversees. A trip to Germany would help reporter Amanda Chase learn the truth about that country's new leader and expose it to the world. But if the quiet rumors are true, her Jewish relatives may be in danger - and Amanda could be swept into their struggle to Escape on the Wind. Keiko's traditional Japanese father has surprised her with an arranged marriage, but the bombing of Pearl Harbor has shattered the security of her world. Betrayed by the country she loves, with the world around her in a bitter conflict, can Keiko find happiness following The Rising Son? Nurse Candleshine Thatcher and pilot Jeffery Fairfax meet coincidentally...and face an inevitable good-bye. Theirs is a wartime romance, a wisp of a breeze in the sultry South Pacific, an impulsive promise made amid threats of invasion and attack. Faith unites these women...love gives them strength. Follow their stories through one of the most compelling periods of American history.
