'Encia, a tiny mistreated orphan, marches away from Balatunong at age five. Six months and over fifty miles later she looks longingly at the happy children and workers about the mansion where Lydia lives and manages her plantation, and says to herself, "I would like to live there."
Lydia, still unmarried, often prayed that she might care for her dead beloved Florencia's child, whom she had only heard might be, opens her heart and home to 'Encia.
Under the hand of the Ultimate Survivor 'Encia fulfills a prediction that she will marry a foreigner an travel to other lands, there to personally meet her Divine Father whom she so longs to know.
The Cagayan River Valley of Luzon, Philippines is the setting for a true story of divine superintendence over a life of directed wandering during peace, WW2, and international travel. She places her budding faith in the Unknown God, whom she determines to know, and 'Encia unwittingly receives the guidance and direction she needs, thus fulfilling in these times God's promise in Psalm 27:10, "When my father and my mother forsake me, the Lord will take me up."
This modern autodrama with simple reality, speaks healing words of hidden wisdom for the seeker, hope for the hopeless, encouraging strength for the wavering, a vision of destiny for the wanderer, and balm for the abused. Cheerful optimism and sometimes humorous episodes charm and intrigue the reader.
