Summary
In turn-of-the-20th century Texas, the Berachah Home for the Redemption and Protection of Erring Girls is a beacon of hope for young women consigned to the streets by birth, circumstance, or personal tragedy. Built in 1903 on the dusty outskirts of Arlington, the progressive home bucks public opinion by offering faith, training, and rehabilitation to prostitutes, addicts, unwed mothers, and "ruined" girls without forcibly separating mothers from children. When Lizzie Bates and Mattie McBride meet there, they form a friendship that will see them through unbearable loss, heartbreak, difficult choices, and ultimately, diverging paths. A century later Cate Sutton, a university librarian, uncovers their stories, and is led her to confront her own heartbreaking past. -- adapted from jacket
