Pregnantby a man who will never know or care. Gloria, born into a life of prostitution, sees only one solution: get rid of the child. But then she meets John William MacGregan, a miner, left with a newborn daughter and no one to care for her when his wife died during childbirth. So John and Gloria strike a deal. Gloria will care for Kate, and John will eventually raise her son. There is no offer of, nor seeking for, a hand in marriage. When John leaves the mines to seek his fortune in the new Oregon Territory , Gloria, Kate, and baby Danny must go with him. Yanked away from a life of prostitution, Gloria must finally face the pain that has always plagued her, and her longings for a home, a family, and a life free from shame. Ten Thousand Charms is a beautiful tale of an empty heart floundering…and falling straight into the arms of Christ.

Story Behind the Book
"Having grown up watching reruns of Gunsmoke , I knew all about Miss Kitty and the prostitute-with-a-heart-of-gold cliché. But when I looked at those women, I couldnt imagine their hearts full of gold. Their hearts were just empty. Thats when Gloria was conceived. The story itself came about much later, when at church we sang Come Ye Sinners, Poor and Needy. The chorus promises, In the arms of my dear Savior there are ten thousand charms. This was the gold Glorias heart needed. I wanted to write a story about a woman who falls into the arms of Christ, not even really knowing that she is seeking Him."

I was really reluctant to read this book. It is not a book I would normally read. After the first chapter, i realized that i was extremely WRONG. I ablsolutely loved this book. The author does an awesome job of making you feel like your right there with the characters. I have never cried while reading a book, this was the first book i cried. I will most definately be reading this again and recommend it.

This author writes in such a way to make you feel that you are there within the story. I felt all the emotions of the characters and did not want to put the book down! The action in the narrative moves along steadily and combines humor with everyday life in a very delightful way. The struggles of the main character concerning her faith in God were common to many people. These are characters you can believe in and identify with. Great story!
