This is book number 4 in the Between Worlds series.
Grief pretends it's our best friend. But our true best friends hold our hands and light the way.
Juliana and Rachel have been best friends for years. Which is why their long-distance friendship has been so hard. When tragedy strikes Rachel's family, Juliana begs to be by her friend's side, but her family forbids the 3,300 km journey. Scared this tragedy could threaten her friendship with Rachel forever, Juliana searches for help in her great-grandmother's sketchbook...
The war has left Elisabeth's cousin Georg with horrible nightmares, everyone fears and ridicules him, and the pastor declares Georg's suffering a punishment from God. But Elisabeth wonders: Does God not call on His followers to help those who are suffering? When she tries to, though, customers threaten to stop taking their shoes to Mammi, and Mammi reveals why she, too, believes Georg deserves these nightmares. Does Elisabeth obey her mother and stay away from her cousin? Or does she try to help a former solider whose mind is surrendering to memories of the horrific war?
As Juliana struggles to support a mourning Rachel from afar, and Elisabeth toils with conflicting feelings about Georg's anguish, both girls face difficult decisions about how they can best help people they love grieve.
