Publisher's Description

Unfit for Love? Pregnant—by 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.

A woman with no future.
A man with no hope.
A God who knows the key to their deepest need lies in each other…

Wyoming Territories, 1860. Gloria is in trouble. A mining camp is a merciless place when you’re young, pregnant…and a prostitute. No matter. Life will not defeat her.

John William McGregan is in despair. His beloved wife died in childbirth. And while John is a resourceful man, raising an infant daughter on his own seems impossible.

Thrown together by a seemingly cruel fate, Gloria and John William make a pact: She will nurse his daughter; he will raise her son. Neither asks for marriage. They are joined by necessity, nothing more.

But after a move to the new Oregon territory, facing John William’s faith day after day, and receiving an older woman’s motherly mentoring, Gloria longs for something more. For the love she’s been denied all her life. If only that life hadn’t made her unfit, not only for John William…but for God.

Then tragedy strikes—making even the resolute John William question his faith. Terrified, Gloria turns to the One she has never been able to trust. But can even God save what now means more to Gloria than life itself: her newfound family?

Editorial Reviews

"If you took Francine River 's classic Redeeming Love and merged it with Janette Oke's quaint prairie style, you could almost envision the masterpiece Allison Pittman has created with her poignant tale of God's redemptive power. If you're in need of a fresh touch of God's grace, Ten Thousand Charms is the story for you." --Janice Thompson, author of Hurricane

"Are you thirsty, weary, or heavy laden? Come—rest and let Allison Pittman take you to another place and time where you will find joy resting in the arms of Jesus." --Lauren L. Briggs, author of The Art of Helping, What to Say and Do When Someone is Hurting, Making the Blue Plate Special, and The Joy of Family Legacies

"Ten Thousand Charms is a terrific debut for writer Allison Pittman, a tale of love and redemption that grabs you and won’t let go. It will leave you like it left me—anxious to see this author’s future work." --James Scott Bell, bestselling author of Presumed Guilty

    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!

    What a poignant portrayal of redemption through the life of one woman who had lost it all! Without hope, faith, or love, Gloria sets out to be a mother to another woman's child. What she doesn't realize is that every step she takes is bringing her right into the loving arms of her Creator! Rich in emotional detail that almost anyone can relate to! Can't wait to get into the sequel!
