(From the publisher):
When her father's plane is shot down behind enemy lines in World War II, everyone in Gail' s small Oklahoma town believes he's dead. Everyone but Gail's mother, who refuses to believe the worst, hoping to keep him alive by sheer faith alone.
Gail's uncle Ned had already lost his faith when he was blinded earlier in the war. Now the loss of his brother is more than he can bear. And, though Gail's father had asked her to watch out for him, Ned's bitterness keeps driving her away.
The only one who seems to break through Ned's shell is Captain, the golden retriever Gail's father gave to her before he left. With the other adults in her life unable to help him, it's now up to Gail and Captain to save Ned from his drive for self-destruction and to restore his faith in his family and his future.
