Based on historical accounts of the Plett family, this story warns those who refuse to acknowledge God. It also assures those who wander that God is faithful in calling them to return home. The choice is theirs to return...or not.

Born to a wealthy landowner in Prussia in 1765, Johann Plett was heir to a vast estate the which he could not survey completely in a full day's ride. Raised and baptized in the Mennonite church, his marriage seemed likely to secure his happiness.

But Johann had long scorned his father's wealth. The church had its troubles and his religious training didn't stamp out his self-centeredness and pride. Then his father disapproved of his marriage.

So Johann turned his back on faith, family, and favor of a new-though-not-improved life

Returning Home follows Johann's harrowing journey far from the haunting memories of his past into political intrigue and conspiracy, forced military service, drink, poverty, and devastating loss. Finally, driven to despair, he had to choose either to reject the God of his youth or return to Him. His decision would affect his family for generations to come.
