Thoroughly enjoyed this story about a young woman who, after being left at the alter by her fiance, takes a trip to Peru on a 10-day humanitarian mission to work in a children's orphanage. The only disappointment in this book is that it ended too soon!
This was such a touching book of areas in the heart we don't want to go through such as separation, being stood up at the altar, illness, accidents, etc. I thought it would be predictable, but found that it intrigued me to listen to the end, and on the last CD was riveted to my seat in the sewing room, and really didn't want the story to end.
