Heartwarming and heart-stopping classroom adventures.

Welcome to the town of Karola, Kansas, where the air is clean, the sky vast and blue, and the people have a strong tradition of extending the Golden Rule to all. First year teacher Lydia Birn faces heartwarming and heart-stopping adventures at Karola School as Tommy disappears on the class field trip, Brian’s pet snake escapes in the classroom, and Brenna refuses to depart from her imaginary world long enough to learn to read. With husband Farmer John at her side, Lydia relies on her faith in God and the support of her colleagues and self-appointed mentors, Abby and Ruth.



Linda Born worked for twenty-two years as a first grade teacher and implemented a special program for children with reading challenges. She is a farm wife and is the primary caregiver for her mother, who has dementia. Her inspirational book My Mom Has Alzheimer’s was published by Bridge-Logos Foundation in 2009. Linda lives in a yellow farmhouse in Kansas with her husband, John.
