Leaving their rural Nebraska home far behind, the Delacourt sisters - Sharon, Danielle, Sabrina, and Denise - have chosen to pursue their dreams in a big city. Set on making an impact on the world, will they meet disappointment or delight? Working within Washington, D.C., political circles, Sharon wants to make A World of Difference. But will rumors of scandal ruin her vision of peace and love? Danielle's crusade on behalf of the residents of an Atlanta nursing home pits her against the wealthy owner. Can she remind him that the true riches Beneath Heaven's Curtain have nothing to do with money? Sabrina has taken a short-term mission assignment in Hong Kong. Could the discovery of new love In the Heart of the Storm carry her beyond the call of duty? The Arrow of God's will is leading Denise toward a teaching position in Houston's inner city. Can she bring her heart to love these students - and their unconventional mentor? Life in the city offers new challenges, new lessons, and new loves. Will these four young women see their new world through God's eyes and rise to their opportunities like the surrounding sky-scrapers?
