Charlie lost her parents when she was five years old while on their way home from church. She has suffered from survivors gulit ever since. Now she is 19, she wants no part of any church, or anyone else who looks at her with those eyes full of pity she never asked for. While waiting for her sophmore year in college, she starts working for a library to make some extra money. She never counted on the manager, a 41 year old woman who used every opportunity to 'preach the good news of Christ the living God' being so... intresting. Although she's a little odd, especially with her belief, she never pushes them down Charlie's throat. Now she just has to deal with the nosey woman trying to 'introduce' her to some guy she's never met, and the guilt and pain of her parents death after all these years, as well as the fascination with the God her employer seems to have such faith in. Will she let God in, or blame Him for her parents death? And better yet, will the nosey woman with the strange ways be the key to Charlotte Beauclaire forgiving herself? You'll just have to read to find out.
