Summary: A chance airport encounter with Linda, a former high school classmate, prompts Edward, a jaded Christian counselor, to reflect on his own disappointment with God. A familiar Charles Dickens theme transports Edward to his own past, to Linda’s future, and to the unfamiliar, sidebar story of widowed Naomi in the otherwise familiar Book of Ruth. Eloquent Old Testament saints, a German pastor, and a gung-ho Army sergeant in Iraq remind Edward that, in spite of painful life circumstances, God is an Ebenezer, a stone of help in times of trouble.
