Charlotte ~ Saved by Grace  by Betty Ruth Weatherby

Unable to follow Moses, a remnant of the Hebrew people flee westward from Egypt. After elud-
ing treachery and enduring hardship, they finally find a home in West Africa. Among the trea-
sured remembrances they carried was a star sapphire amulet, which becomes revered as a totem
by later generations and eventually finds its way into the hands of Charlotte Lanover, an intel-
ligent, capable teenage girl who yearns for a new adventure to take her away from the small-village missionary life her family leads.
The dark cloud of the Second World War hangs over the region, but the Lanovers do not feel it
as a reality until it crashes down upon them and tears the family apart. Charlotte is thrust from a pleasant afternoon of running with her father, to running for her life from angry, armed soldiers,
with the strange amulet as her only comfort.
Harrowing trials along her journey require Charlotte to face her fears and look deeper into her faith. As she slowly restores her floundering relationship with God and grows closer to the people around her, she begins to wonder if her amulet is truly a gift from God or merely a reminder that God is always with her.
Since placing her faith in Christ at age ten, Betty Ruth Weatherby has focused her worship on  the lifelong struggle to discern God's will for her life. She has been serving churches in various roles since 1963, and she continues to serve the Lord by teaching, writing, and participating in
evangelical missions.
