Book One: Amy


It was April, 1899, and 20 year old Amy Stuart was sailing from Scotland to begin a new life in America. Her best friend Sara had died in childbirth, leaving a physician-husband and three children in New York City.  Dr. McCurdy had asked her to help take care of the three children.  Amy had no idea that this adventure would take her to a frontier town in Arizona Territory, or that her steamer trunk would become her Hope Chest, where God would blend her reality with the future. 

The first book in a series that spans 70+ years, lives are intertwined as the McCurdy family lives through the Great War, the Roaring Twenties, the stock market crash, the Great Depression, World War II and beyond. 

Throughout the generations, God demonstrates that He is outside time, knowing the end from the beginning, and using the Hope Chest to transport his purposes
