We never know how God may lead us. The twists and turns of life often leave us confused and deflated. For 10-year-old Haley, the unexpected loss of her father was such a twist. When all is lost, a little light in the darkness can make all the difference. The world is a big place for a little girl. For that matter, it's a pretty big place for anyone who has lost their way.
Hayley finds her solution in a modern day prince, but she can't pull off this miracle by herself. Nick, an attorney struggling to save his job, wouldn't seem to be much help to a little girl trying to create a miracle. But life has a way of bringing us the people we need most, at just the right time. Still, there is so much that could go wrong, especially when her headstrong mother doesn't fall for the prince. But there's something Hayley doesn't see coming, something she can't see. Something she doesn't want to see, something that hides in the dark where she can't go, something unspeakable.
Follow Haley's journey into the light and see how redemption is there for anyone, even the condemned. And see how love can find you-even through the darkness.

The Description on the book "A Little Girl's Journey through Loss, Love, and Redemption" is right on target!. The guilt that this girl carries with her is so great that she does not want anyone to know what she did. As she tries to "fix" what she did others are hurt and she feels like she can't do anything right. I really felt for this girl. I cried with her when she thought about her dad. I lost my dad 5 years ago and I could relate to Haley. She is definitely a great character. The author did a great job describing DC and I felt like Haley was taking me on a tour. The ending was bitter sweet. I liked that Haley came clean, and it was touching when they talked about her dad. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinion s are my own.
Hayley is a grief stricken fifth grader who has recently lost her father. Her mother and siblings are also dealing with the loss. Hayley decides she has to do something to "fix" her family and decides her mother needs a new husband and that she and her siblings need a new father. Hayley finds an ad about a "matchmaker" and decides that is the answer for their family. This story is fiction and it often requires quite a suspension of belief. Sometimes it seemed like I'd missed a section, but I hadn't, the story doesn't always flow very well. It's a quick summer time read.
