Itís the summer of 1929, and Katie OíConnor knows exactly what she wants: marriage to rich, rakish, albeit spoiled Jack Worthington, and a law career. When Jack and others in her circle of self-centered, privileged friends deliberately humiliate a soda jerk, Katie is embarrassed. Then she breaks curfew too many times, and her father sentences her to work as a summer volunteer at the Boston Childrenís Aid Society. Raised on the wrong side of the tracks, Luke McGee has worked his way through law school, and even though heís now an attorney, he fills in at the soda counter for a friend, only to become the brunt of Jack and the gangís cruelty. When Luke becomes assistant director of the Boston Childrenís Aid Society, his life becomes intertwined with Katieís, perhaps forever. A rich girl and a poor boy find that love can be the great equalizer in Lessmanís engrossing tale, which has more awareness and sizzle between the hero and heroine than your average inspirational romance.

I read this book before the Daughters of Boston Series, and I have to say.....great story! Katie O'Connor finds true love in the last place she ever imagined. A story that proves that God can use what seems like a bad situation to bring about love.
