The Waiting

Full Product Description

Now in softcover! A five star-reviewed, unforgettable story that bestselling author Homer Hickam calls "one of the most eloquent, moving, irresistible true stories" he's ever read. The Waiting will touch your heart and make you believe in love's enduring legacy, as well as the power of prayer.

In 1928, 16-year-old Minka was on a picnic in the woods when she was assaulted and raped. And suddenly this innocent farm girl--who still thought the stork brought babies--was pregnant. The story that follows has been almost a hundred years in the making. After a lifetime of separation, Minka whispered an impossible prayer for the first time: Lord, I'd like to see Betty Jane before I die.

What happened next was a miracle.

Written by Cathy LaGrow (Minka's granddaughter), The Waiting brings three generations of this most unusual family together over the course of a century in a story of faith that triumphs, forgiveness that sets us free, and love that never forgets.

The Waiting by Cathy LaGrow was published by Tyndale House Publishers in May 2015 and is our 39856th best seller. The ISBN for The Waiting is 9781496403278.
