Lucy is a feisty, precocious tomboy who questions everything -- even God. It's not hard to see why: a horrible accident killed her mother and blinded her father, turning her life upside down. It will take a strong but gentle housekeeper -- who insists on Bible study and homework when all Lucy wants to do is play soccer -- to show Lucy that there are many ways to become the woman God intends her to be.
Growing up is hard when you don't have a mother -- but God helps Lucy find her way.
Lucy's bossy, career-minded Aunt Karen thinks eleven-year-old Lucy needs a woman's influence. Enter Inez -- a housekeeper with a will as strong as Lucy's -- and her granddaughter Mora, a girly-girl who is Lucy's polar opposite. Will the girls ever find common ground? Inez might have the answers when she teaches them the story of Ruth and Naomi.
