When he applies for a church in Linden, Missouri, and, accepted by the deacons there, he feels that he has found security for his family. He does not realize that in return for this security the people of Linden expect him to defer to their practices and ideas and will use church law as well as social pressure to ensure conformity.The struggles of London and his wife Kathie to keep both their church and their spiritual integrity, rise to a powerful climax when Kathie becomes seriously ill.

London realizes he must choose between Linden and the people who contributed to their unhappiness and a rich metropolitan parish where he might escape to a contented and more profitable life.James Street went to a Baptist seminary and had his own church for a few years before devoting himself to writing full-time.

It is from his experiences as a young pastor that he can speak so well about the challenges facing London and Kathie Wingo — discord, feuds, rigid mores, lack of privacy, balancing selfless service and a personal life, as well as the maturity and deepening that evolves as one hurls through lifes obstacles.
