About the Book:
A Story of Hope and Love Set Against the Backdrop of World War II
Lydia Eldredge longs to provide sanctuary for her young son, Nicky. But a constant threat comes from Nicky's drug-addicted father, who wants the boy and seems willing to do whatever it takes to get him.
Dr. Micah Hatcher faithfully serves the immigrant population of Queens, New York. But under cover of darkness, he has a secret mission that challenges everything he thought he wanted out of life.
When Lydia and Micah's paths cross, they are suddenly wrapped up in each others callings. Together, they seek a refuge of safety--for Nicky, for themselves, and for the needy people God puts into their lives. Amid turmoil and discord, can hope and love prevail?

My Review:
 Two lives meld together during World War II to save a little boy and they may fall in love before this is all over with.

One of the main characters, Micah receives a letter that potential damaging effects. The letter was a shocking revelation one that Micah was not expecting. That is for sure! So he boards a train to Boston to clear this matter up right away. Upon arrival, he sees little Nicky kneeled down on the ground focused on finding bugs. It is soon realized that Lydia did not send for Micah and the battle starts to rage between Lydia's father and Micah.

 So Lydia proceeds to tell Micah the history behind Nicky's birth and how she came about having him with her. Meanwhile, Nicky's real father Nick is trying his best to find his son not leaving any stone unturned he talks to the midwife and everyone involved. Soon Lydia is trying to get help from Micah because Nick is nothing but trouble.
