    An Unusual Absorbing Story of Love

    This story is a quick read--the first time. I've been drawn back to a second and third re-reading. Who would have ever thought a Roman Catholic Sister of Mercy would become the legal mother of a small girl with AIDS? It almost seemed predestined that they meet and their lives intertwine. As you read, tears will well up in your eyes--of compassion, of sadness, of humor. Truly a book that 'lights up' one's spirit.
