Paperback: 7895 pages
Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers (May 17, 2013)
Grace McCaffery hopes that the bustling streets of New York hold all the promise that the lush hills of Ireland did not. As her efforts to earn enough money to bring her mother to America fail, she wonders if her new Brownie camera could be the answer.
But a casual stroll through a beautiful New York City park turns into a hostile run-in with local gangsters, who are convinced her camera holds the first and only photos of their elusive leader. A policeman with a personal commitment to help those less fortunate finds Grace attractive and longs to help her, but Grace believes such men cannot be trusted. Spread thin between her quest to rescue her mother, do well in a new nanny job, and avoid the gang intent on intimidating her, Grace must put her faith in unlikely sources to learn the true meaning of courage and forgiveness.
This was a lovely story. I enjoyed watching Grace grown from a scared girl, alone in a new world, to a confident young woman. It was also nice to see her faith in the Lord grow, too. This was a great story and is very well written. I would love to see a sequel!
