Despite her familys disapproval, Olivia Wakefield determines to honor her fathers debt but cant find Maureen. Unexpected help comes from a local businessman, whom Olivia begins to see as more than an ally, even as she fears the secrets hes hiding. As women begin disappearing from the store, Olivia rallies influential ladies in her circle to help Maureen take a stand against injustice and fight for the lives of their growing band of sisters. But can either woman open her heart to divine leading or the love it might bring?
Gohlke tells a captivating story, presenting different characters in varying stages of their faith. Maureen isn't perfect. She is at a point many can relate to: trying to understand how a loving God could care about someone like her. She learns this and feels God's support as her story progresses.
Maureen eventually finds employment in a high-class department store after her rough start in America. But she soon discovers the store holds a dark secret that threatens the safety of women in the city. She finds support from an unexpected source, a band of sisters led by Olivia Wakefield, the daughter of her would-be benefactor. Together, they work against the injustices faced by immigrant women.
In Luke 2:10 an angel says, "Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all the people." Maureen struggles with this concept throughout the book, the idea of living without fear, of having joy. Maureen is a refreshing character to follow. She is not at a perfect place in her faith, and throughout the book we get to see her work through her doubts and reservations. She claims God's love as she grows closer and closer Him throughout her difficulties.
The novel gives a realistic portrayal of life for a new immigrant in America. As Maureen works hard to make her way in her new home, she learns to lean on God and to trust that he accepts her, no matter what. This book is recommended to women and teens who will likely feel some connection to the likeable, determined character of Maureen. - Caroline Riofredo, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
