Sibyl wants to make the world a better place. Since her youth, she has followed her papa, a respected, clever-minded banker. Interested in politics and asking the hard questions of life, she struggles to find her purpose. She does her best to listen to God, even when her father refuses to help.
Blessings come. A new baby, a job with the PWA, and a promise of a brighter future. Then another disaster crushes her heart. Many people head west to save their families. Will Sibyl and Fremont abandon Oklahoma and their dreams for promises in California? Or will they find a way to survive in Shawnee?
Sibyl hopes to become a perfect mother and housewife, while her husband, Fremont seeks employment during the great depressions he's ever known. Do difficulties happen even while trying to do right? Faith, Loss, and Hope in the 1930s, the second in the historical series, is based in Shawnee, Oklahoma.

It’s a story of faith in the most trying times, learning to trust God even when it seems daunting.
The 1930s was a time of great hardship but where there was love, hope, and faith, there would be survival. God will see us through all the seasons of our lives.
