A secondhand book that has been read but is in good condition. Very minimal damage to the cover, including minimal scuff marks and creasing, but no holes or tears. The majority of pages are undamaged, with minimal creasing but no tearing. There is some yellowing bordering the pages, with the last page significantly discoloured, though none of the discolouring effects the eligibility of the text. No pencil underlining of text, no highlighting of text, no writing in margins. No missing pages. An aged but good solid and clean copy.
"Broken by life's disappointments, four women forge a friendship that leads in unexpected directions.
Hope Benson is determined to do all she can for the broken souls who come to Casa de Jesus, a women's shelter in the heart of San Francisco. When a difficult pregnancy forces her to relinquish control, she draws support and strength from an unlikely group of women, each struggling with her own heartbreak.
Andy Taylor, a reluctant transplant to California, was compelled to leave behind her lavender-growing business and her home of twenty-some years to support her workaholic husband's pursuit of career success. Attorney Julia Collins is searching for her teenage granddaughter, believed to be living on the streets. And Clarice Van Dam's life has been shattered by the disappearance of her husband, who appears to have relieved her of all earthly possessions except a fur coat and her overnight bag.
Drawn together at the weekend market held in the shelter's parking lot, the women pool their resources to fend off an unscrupulous conglomerate that threatens to replace the facility with a commercial development. As they fight to retain this haven for women in need, they find their own longings for home answered by the solace of faith and friendship."
