Book Jacket:

A Powerful Historical Drama Based on the Story Behind The Hymn "It Is Well With My Soul"

This historical novel opens on the eve of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 and explores the resulting two-year drama, heartbreak, and redemption that shaped the life of one of America’s great hymn writers--Horatio Gates Spafford.

A poignant novel of relationships, Finding Anna follows Spafford and his wife, Anna, as they struggle to find common ground before their divided loyalties tear apart their marriage once and for all. What will it take for them to recover their faith--in God and each other? Is love powerful enough to bring them through the greatest tragedy of their lives?

In an account that adds little-known details to a well-known story, Schaub debuts the MUSIC OF THE HEART series with perhaps the most personally compelling of all Christian hymns--"It Is Well With My Soul."
