Review of Maggie Rose

When Maggie Rose Kane leaves her home in Michigan to work in an orphanage in New York, she embarks on an adventure that will show her love, courage, and perseverance. Luke Madison is a reporter who has a tragic loss that consumes his life until his editor assigns him to write a story about the Sheltering Arms Orphanage. His skepticism soon turns to admiration for those involved with the home. Author Sharlene MacLaren has created realistic characters in her loving adults and delightful children who tug at your heart and won’t let go. They pull Luke Madison in and show him what true love and commitment is all about. You won’t regret taking this journey to faith and love as Luke and Maggie Rose learn the power of God’s love no matter what the circumstances of life may be. In addition, Sharlene adds just enough suspense and danger to keep readers turning the pages.

This sounds like a very touching historical. I had a sister-in-law who worked in a Guatemalan orphanage. Please add me to your contest. Thank you.
