Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Newspaper reporter Ana Burns resists the idea of her new assignment-writing a series on the effects of lead paint on children-because she is looking for what she considers more exciting stories. When she realizes that her job is on the line if she doesn't do the series, Ana follows a tip and heads off to the urban youth center, Haven, where she meets the elusive director, Sam Hawke, who is not too keen on answering questions. But Ana develops a relationship with a young girl named Flora, and Sam realizes that Flora needs Ana to help her open up and heal. This well-developed story, full of romance and intrigue, deserves a place in CF and contemporary romance collections. Palmer (The Briton) lives in Missouri.

    This book is a departure from Catherine Palmer's Victorian style, and it is fantastic!! The storyline deals with a reporter assigned to do a story, and how she ends up solving a mystery, saving a little girl, and falling in love. The author shows how sometimes a child knows who is trustworthy better than adults do, and the pitfalls of making assumptions without having all the facts. She also shows how trust, once lost, is not easy to regain, even between good friends. Even with all the struggles the characters face, good does triumph and the guy gets the girl. This is one of Cathy's best books!
