About this Book
A past filled with shame can be washed away with a love that conquers all
Born to an unloving prostitute in a popular Chicago brothel, timid seventeen-year-old Dinah Hubley was raised amidst the secrets held in every dark, grimy room of her home. Anxious to escape, Dinah pursues her dream of becoming a Harvey Girl, waiting tables along the railroad in an upscale hotel. But when she finds out she isnâ€™t old enough, her only option is to accept a job as a chambermaid at the Clifton Hotel in Florence, Kansas. Eager to put everything behind her, Dinah feels more worthless than ever, based on a single horrible decision she made to survive.
The Clifton offers a life Dinah has never known, but blinded to the love around her, Dinah remains buried in the shame of her past. When a handsome chicken farmer named Amos Ackerman starts to show interest, Dinah withdraws further, convinced no one could want a sullied woman like her. Despite his self-consciousness about his handicapped leg and her strange behavior, Amos resolves to show Dinah Christâ€™s love. But can she ever accept a gift she so desperately needs?

This is the third book I’ve read by this author and she continues to impress me with her story telling ability. Each story she develops at least one character that I find extremely endearing. In this story there are two, Dinah and Amos, our two main characters.
Both of our main characters are broken in their own way. Each struggle to find acceptance, yet Amos had his faith that he leaned on. Dinah broke my heart with the depth of her pain and the feelings of worthlessness. I saw myself in Dinah as I think many women will. Ruthie, Dinah’s roommate and co-worker was also a great character and I enjoyed watching her as she struggled with how to handle her new roommate. However, in many ways my favorite character was Mr. Irwin.
The story itself is well told and not completely predictable. It’s well paced and I found myself drawn in from the opening pages.
This is a stand alone story. If you’ve read and enjoyed other Kim Vogel Sawyer books you will absolutely love this story. If she’s a new author to you this will give you a great introduction to a talented writer.
