The bank branch where Richard is manager is shutting down--and his ex wife drops his teenage daughter on his doorstep. So now he has the adorasble stray dog he adopted, a daughter he is not sure is really his daughter--and no job! He is bound and determined to make ends meet.Maria, his daughter is like Cinderella--she has been used as a cook etc all her life with her mother. She kind of takes over the cleaning and cooking for Richard even though he never asks her to. Of course--how long can they keep eating microwaved dinners?

Richard takes on a job that is really not what he wants to do--he does finally get a better paying job!

The three of them move to a smaller house and Richard finally gets a gig in the evenings singing and playing his guitar which has actually been his dream.

He gets Maria into a very good private day school because he wants the best for her. Maria insists on cleaning and cooking none the less and begins to go to the place where Richard plays in the evenings. The dog goes everywhere they go! The owner of the place allows them to stay over--and Maria starts cooking for him as well!!

This is a heart rending book in some ways--in others heart warming. The ending will shock you somewhat--but all is well!!

About the Author: (from Amazon)

Sarah Stuart is an award-winning author whose books are based on her show business experience, her concern for animals, the challenges of her Christian faith, and her passions for history and travel.

Sarah's hope is that readers will enjoy her novels as an escape from reality, but be left understanding that fame and fortune often comes at a high personal cost. Also, an increased perception of the threat to animals: those shot in the name of sport for trophy heads, endangered species, many poached for their fur and ivory, and tragically discarded pets.

Sarah appreciates reviews very much. Readers have already helped endangered species and discarded pets worldwide; she donates 100% of her royalties to help and reviews encourage others to buy and review for this globally worthwhile cause.
