Time seems to be against missionary Ruthanne Carroll. Suddenly faced with a life threatening illness, she reluctantly returns to the U.S. from a small Maasai village in Kenya. Once she reunites with her sisters Elizabeth and Melody, she clearly sees God’s hand leading her to uncover a guilty secret from her past.

A journey to uncover the truth leads them through sometimes dangerous circumstances and battles with old hurts. Each find their faith and relationships challenged as they reach a crossroads where the choices are healing and reconcilation or bitterness and defeat.

   The Time Under Heaven by Laurinda Wallace is a very good book. This is the first time I’ve read any books by Laurinda and I’m glad she found me.
  The time Under Heaven is a story about three sisters who are so very different from each other. They only corresponded at Christmas and hardly stay in touch.
   After Ruthanne finds out she has a very serious health problem and is forced to go home does the sisters start becoming friends again and they learn about each other and in the process they learn about themselves.
  The sisters and a close friend of Ruthanne’s are very likable characters and have very different lives. I like how they become good friends again and try to help each other out.
  The things I didn’t care for in the book is so many things seemed like they were left up in the air. Like there should be another book to answer some of the questions I have. I wasn’t really pleased with the ending, because I thought it should be different and more upbeat. I didn’t think the daughter would have changed that quickly and we didn’t find out why she was so cold toward Ruthanne. I don’t want to say to much about the ending and give it away, but I wasn’t overly pleased with it.
  Still I recommend you to read this book. It has very many interesting parts and full of love and compassion. A very easy read.
