Set in 1914 following the outbreak of war, the world is in turmoil. Everyone suffers during war but “The Lord is bigger than war.” However at the time, we do not always believe this to be the case. How could a loving God permit such horrors? We have to trust that God is good even when we cannot see Him. “Did she hear God’s voice amid the noise of life?” Sometimes life drowns out God but that doesn’t mean that He is not there.
War throws up issues of trust. In a world of espionage and double agents, soldiers and civilians, we have to make up our mind whom to trust. Not all villains wear German uniforms. Not all civilians can be trusted.
