When Nancy was offered a summer job at a Christian host camp in the North Carolina mountains, she jumped at the chance. Her mother’s former boss and his wife were leaders at the summer camp and suggested that she work as a waitress. She had never been away from home before so when her cousin Tom also got a job there, she felt that with friends and family she would not be lonely. Her mother made Nancy promise to write a letter home every day. But instead of comforting her, the obligatory letter writing made her homesickness even worse. Fortunately, her dorm mother and the postmaster were very helpful and supportive.
The first night at camp, the counselors handed out assignments and camp information. But when the counselors went to their dormitory, a gang of girls told everyone the way it really was going to be, along with the threat that if they told anyone, the gang members would harm them and possibly kill their families. 
Thus began a summer of sleepless nights, days filled with accidents, intimidation, fear and dangerous seduction. All of this was set against a backdrop of regal mountains, glorious sunrises, and budding romances. 
Where was God in all of this? Despite many prayers, the situation escalated until it came to a head in a terrible rainstorm when God showed His power and his plan to provide the camp workers with safety and peace.
