Ten-year-old Glory Bea Bennett believes in miracles. After all, her grandmother—the best matchmaker in the whole county—is responsible for thirty-nine of them so far.
Now, Glory Bea wants a miracle of her own—her daddy’s return.
The war ended three years ago, but Glory Bea’s father never returned from the front in France. She believes Daddy is still out there.
When reports that the Texas boxcar from the Merci Train—a train filled with gifts of gratitude from the people of France—will be stopping in Gladiola, Glory Bea just knows Daddy will be its surprise cargo.
But miracles, like people, are always changing, until at last they find their way home.
