"Kelly's smooth voice and well-crafted writing keep the pages turning." s Weekly, praise for Kelly's first book, Julia's Hope.

In a time of confusion, in the midst of grief, they discovered something beautiful.

Julia Wortham is a strong woman with a strong faith to match. She and her husband, Samuel, rely on God, their creativity, and the love of their friend Emma Graham to provide for their family in the impoverished conditions of 1931.

But just days before Christmas, the Wortham family is faced with a terrible loss - the death of their neighbour, Wilametta Hammond, who is the mother of ten and the glue that holds her family together. In his grief over her death, her husband, George, ignores the children and has no will to live. Sam and Julia step in to help, but how can they manage ten extra children when they barely have enough for themselves?

In the web of emotions and fear, Julia's faith begins to tangle. Why would God take away someone who was needed so much? How can the void of lost friends be filled? But amidst their sorrow, the grieving families discover the unexpected - a gift of hope that will shape them all.

-Publisher

In Leisha Kelly's well-received novel, Julia's Hope, Samuel and Julia Wortham and their two children charmed readers as they found shelter in the home-and heart-of a grandmotherly woman named Emma Graham. Now, in Emma's Gift, the Wortham family is struck down by the deaths of two close friends, including their neighbor Wilametta Hammond, just days before Christmas 1931. Wila is the mother of ten children and the glue that holds the family together. In his grief, her husband, George, ignores the children and has no will to live. Sam and Julia step in to help, but how can they manage ten extra children when they barely have enough for themselves? Can George overcome his grief and become the father his children need? And if Emma's nephew takes ownership of her land, will the Worthams be allowed to stay? Masterfully told from the perspective of both Samuel and Julia, Emma's Gift is an unforgettable story of God's faithfulness and peace and of the seasons of life that shape each of us.
-Publisher

This novel continues the story of Sam and Julia Wortham, Emma Graham, and their neighbors, as they face the challenges of living during the Depression.
