Sadie, the female main character and Blaine, her beau have an O. Henry “gifts of the magi” relationship. They both battle their scarred childhoods which shapes their drive and confidence levels. It also gives them great compassion for others. The setting of the Raystown Home for Orphan and Friendless Children gives the reader pause in how we, yet today, help out these homes. The Raystown home struggled from week to week in having enough funds. It provided a necessary and tremendously good service for the families and orphans.
I liked this story. Although I expected love to find a way, the twists and turns were surprising and made for a good read.
