What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The Time Under Heaven is a very personal story of family and how real faith is worked out in real life. It’s often messy and imperfect, full of trials and unexpected opportunities. Our decisions to live by faith rather than by sight will make all the difference as the Carroll sisters discover. And I hope readers will encounter as well.
