Falling Acorns is the sequel to Deep Runs the River, which introduces Rusty Jenson, a young man whose lifestyle put him in prison, where he was saved. Then he returned to his hometown to make amends for the wrongs he had done. Falling Acorns follows up on his offspring and other family members as they follow in his footsteps with faith in Christ. They face some of the same challenges as most families – youthful indiscretion, drug use, death, business matters, and service – and deal with them masterfully.
