In the fourth book of the Tales of the Scavenger's Daughters series, the fates of three people who've never met converge in profound and unexpected ways.
Mari, the daughter of the town scavenger, grew up knowing hardship, but she never could have anticipated the struggles that now face her as an adult. Feeling alone and isolated, she dreams of a better life. On the other side of town, a frightened little girl named An Ni is forced to live on the streets, but she silently longs for the one thing she's never known - a family. Max, a struggling American photojournalist, arrives in China with only one goal in mind: to face his demons and put an end to his own unbearable suffering.
From the best-selling author of A Thread Unbroken comes an emotional, hope-filled story that offers a fresh glimpse into the life of a remarkable family.

Not only is this a great read, but Kate Rudd does an excellent narration. The stories are heart warming and the characters are well developed. I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to reading the prequel.
Kay Bratt has again taken me to a place that captivates. A read I didn't want to put down. This series has kept me looking for more. Recommend this book as I do all her others
