Hiding in the shadows just got harder.
When tragedy strikes, Juliana and her family must flee their home. Can they persuade a virtual stranger to help them? Juliana isn't so sure, especially after their chaperone threatens to cane him. Even as Juliana struggles to trust him, she finds herself drawn to this mysterious man. Surely all she wants from him is refuge.
Rupert is a man whose life depends on his ability to remain unnoticed. What, then, is he supposed to do with this family he's inherited? His life is overrun with an ancient chaperone who would terrify a lesser man, two spirited girls, and the secretive Juliana - someone he comes to think of as his own precious jewel.
With this new responsibility thrust upon him, Rupert will have to make sacrifices - but will God ask him to sacrifice everything?

I love reading! I also love looking for mistakes in what I'm reading.
Unlike the majority of stories I read or listen to (audiobooks), I was left with not a single question by the end of this story. Very rare! Ms. Gray wrote a really good story that made sense. Rupert was my favorite character because he led a very interesting sounding life and it was hard to believe all the injuries he'd sustained. If this were made into a movie, I'd be curious to see the male character chosen for Rupert's part, especially how his body would look after all the scars and injuries were added.
