Mary Bridget Washburn is tired of running, tired of being haunted by the empty shell her life has become. How in the world did the little girl she once was become a woman on the wrong side of the law?
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?

Editorial Reviews

In this heart-tugging tale, Mary Bridget Washburn escapes her desperate and sinful past by fleeing to a bustling city. There, she crosses the path of Alasdair MacPherson, a widowed pastor who has grown distant from his three children. Their interaction and the crisis they must face together are the subjects of this subtle Christian novel.
Library Journal
Romance novelist Nichols (Handyman) enters the Christian market with this contemporary tale of love and suspense. Abandoning her godly upbringing after the siblings she raised for years are placed in foster care, Mary Bridget ("Bridie") Washburn flees the hills of Virginia with a man who forces her into a life of crime. She eventually reports him to the police and strikes out on her own. Assuming a new identity, Bridie lives a quiet life until she meets a teenaged girl begging God for help. Alasdair MacPherson, the girl's father, is a widowed pastor struggling to raise three children after his wife's suicide. When he hires Bridie as a nanny for his troubled family, her faith is rekindled, and she and Alasdair slowly fall in love. But their happiness is threatened when the man Bridie sent to jail is released and tracks her down seeking vengeance. Although the drama created by the suicide of Alasdair's wife offsets the stock characters and predictable plot, the characters' cool acceptance of it and lack of moral condemnation of her or the deed may trouble more conservative Christian readers.
