Alex saw terror in Howie?s eyes as he took off before Alex could. Howie ran hard, angling back and forth only a little, mostly just getting as far away as afast as he could. Alex was a faster runner, and he could make a few more zigs and zags in his path and still keep up. For a time, it all seemed unnecessary. The two were keeping away from the road, and no one else was nearby. But then bullets began to thump into the plowed ground around them, and suddenly Howie went down.In Far From Home, the third volume of Children of the Promise, Alex Thomas is still battling the Nazi forces. He?s also worried about whether or not he can preserve the lives of the men in his company, especially Howie, a particularly young and inexperienced soldier. But his biggest concern is staying alive for his wife, Anna, in England.In Japan, Wally is still a prisoner of war. Abused by his captors, he?s forced to work long hours in the coal mines. Will he learn from his experience, or will it just make him bitter? Or will he even survive?In Hawaii, Bobbi is hoping for word from her boyfriend, Richard. When she learns that his ship has gone down, she wonders is he?s gone down with it ? and as the days pass, the odds of his survival don?t look good.In Germany, Heinrich Stolz is working as a spy for British Intelligence. But as much as he can, he?s also looking for his missing son, Peter. When he loses his identification papers, he wonders if he can escape from Germany alive.On the home front, stake president Alexander Thomas is becoming wealthy from his weapons factory ? which is actually being run by his wife, Bea. But their teenage daughter La Rue is asserting her independence more and more, and they?re not sure what to do about it. They?re also wondering if they?ll ever be together as a family again.Far From Home is a moving, powerful novel about the effects of adversity, and about the love of family members for each other. If you?re interested in World War II, or if you simply enjoy a great story, you won?t want to miss this third volume of Children of the Promise.
