Eliza's Field of Faith by Rachelle Pace Castor

I finished Eliza's Field of Faith last night.  It is an inspiration read based on events from pioneer times.  Eliza's father has been called to serve and LDS mission to Norway, leaving his family behind in Dry Creek, Utah.  Eliza is mad, she doesn't think that her father should leave, he needs to stay home and take care of his family.  To make matters worse, they get their crops in late, because their father is not there to help.

Then come the crickets.  In Salt Lake, they had the miracle of Seagulls, who ate the crickets and saved the fields.  Eliza's communitydid not have crickets, their fields were ravaged.  Eliza learns that God hears and answers prayers, not in the way that we think He should, He answers in the right way.

As a side note, Rachelle Pace Castor, the author is the owner of the Curves that I go to.  I can hear her voice in this book, which was fun for me.  I gave this book 4 stars.  It is a picture book.  A truly inspirational story.
