About this title

Synopsis:

"I love you, Ava Rose," she whispered. "I love you enough to give you life." 1890: All Irish immigrant Deirdre O'Sullivan has ever wanted is a home and a family. But her dreams didn't include living in a cramped tenement in Five Points, New York, with the disillusioned love of her life. Nor could she have imagined that, each day, she'd be torn away from her children to work for low wages in the steamy laundry of a hotel just to survive. Then tragedy strikes twice, and Deirdre struggles with the ultimate act of love-to give her children the chance to live and blossom...without her. When Nebraska homesteaders Sam and Claudine Thompson lose their third baby, she retreats into hopelessness, convinced that the secrets of her past won't ever allow her to be a mother. Then one day the orphan train rolls into town. Claudine insists, "A baby is out there crying. And he's crying for me," and hurries toward the railroad station. Strawberry-blond-haired Ava Rose, four years old, waits on the railroad platform, watching over her fragile baby brother and clinging to hope. Neither has any idea they'll not only fulfill the deepest longings of two mothers, but will also kick off legacies of hope for numerous others who live with poverty and prejudice. A poignant tale of hope and courage amidst unfathomable odds. Don't miss Cleo A. Lampos's stellar series: Teachers of the Diamond Projects School: Diamonds in the Tough: Second Chances and Miss Bee and the Do Bees.
