Lucy is a feisty, precocious tomboy who questions everything--including God. Understandably, especially after an accident killed her mother, blinded her father, and turned her life upside down. It will take a strong but gentle housekeeper--who insists on Bible study along with homework--to show Lucy that there are many ways to become the woman God intends her to be.
Lucy's bossy, career-minded Aunt Karen thinks eleven-year-old Lucy needs a woman's influence. Enter Inez--a housekeeper with a will as strong as Lucy's--and her granddaughter Mora, a girly-girl who is Lucy's polar opposite. Will the girls ever find common ground? Inez just might have the answers when she teaches them the story of Ruth and Naomi.
