Suzanne Randolph messed up…bigtime. And very few people are willing to let her forget her shortcomings let along give her another chance at proving her self a capable journalist. Then her former employer appears with an interesting – yet seemingly out-of-the-spotlight opportunity to salvage her pride. Go cover a story in New York about incoming refugees from Europe who have been displaced by World War II. With nothing to lose she goes. As it turns out she is about to stumble on to the story of a lifetime that will have a dramatic impact on the lives of others as well as her own.
So this wasn’t my favorite story. Anna Schmidt’s first book in this series had far more intrigue and action of war while this title mostly dealt with prejudices and trials 0f the homefront. Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t worthless story it just wasn’t of particular interest to me. Suzanne had a tendency to annoy me with her bull-headed ways and sometimes inability to learn from the past. On top of that her romantic interest(s) were a little daft at times that I couldn’t help but question her sanity. Beth from All God’s Children had far more brains and likable traits as opposed to Suzanne (which is not to say Beth was flawless). Overall it was a wholesome read that teaches lessons about forgiveness and moving on.
