(From the publisher):
No matter how rough Mary Bridget Washburn’s young life got, she never envisioned ending up on the wrong side of the law. Years later, though, hurt and frightened, she decides to make a new start, fleeing to the city of Alexandria, Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C. There she encounters a young girl with problems nearly as daunting as her own. "Bridie" longs to help, but her turbulent past leaves little to offer in the way of hope.
Until she came along, Alasdair McPherson managed quite well, all things considered. At the pinnacle of his career, he pastors a well-known church downtown, has authored numerous books, and hosts a radio program syndicated around the country. True, his daughter has become defiant and he barely knows his twins, but after his wife’s death, who can blame him?
Hiring Bridie seems to be the best decision he’s made, even if her sunny disposition and creative approach to running a household show just how things might have been falling apart more than he admitted. Still, she drives the gloom away whenever she walks in the door. That is, until trouble follows her in....
