If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Determined to make a new start, she escapes to the quaint city of Alexandria, Virginia, where she takes on her mother's identity and finds sanctuary in the shadow of a decades-old church. But a little girl's plea proves to be her undoing, and the reverend•well, someone's got to open his eyes before disaster comes calling.
Can Mary Bridget and her tainted past stay hidden long enough for her to bring hope to a family falling apart?

My Thoughts: This was a very good book and I enjoyed reading it.  It's a lot about relationships, past and present, but mostly to me it's about redemption.  About how we can know God and fall away, but He's always ready to forgive and take us back.  My favorite line in the whole book is:  "You can't out-sin the cross."  That is so true!  Thank you, Lord!  I highly recommend this book.
