This story tugged at my heart. The backgrounds of the heroine, Caitlyn, the hero, Jack, and the child who brings them together, Ricky, are tough ones. Jack sees himself in Ricky who is not used to trusting people. Caitlyn helps Ricky with his education so that he can move up in life. The danger to Ricky is ever present, and the fear that it will find him underlines Ricky's behaviors. I highly recommend this book and I am looking forward to the next in the series.
