Miguel Silva is a street orphan who will do anything to avoid the wrath of his alcoholic aunt and to keep his little sister Sara happy. He and Sara roam the streets of Portugal, begging and stealing to feed and clothe themselves. A sudden twist of fate throws them into an even colder world, where their only chance for survival are Daniel and Cristina Andrade, who are childless by choice.
Daniel Andrade has put his bitter past behind him and found a new life with Cristina. But the past returns in force when Miguel steals his wallet on the ferry, throwing into motion a series of unstoppable events. Daniel doesn't want to face the secrets of the past or open his heart to anyone--yet that is exactly what he must do or face losing everything he loves.
Cristina Andrade also has secrets. Now she must choose between her husband and the deep longing in her heart. Or is there a compromise? Only Miguel can help them find the way--and time for Miguel is running out. Can the Savior's love heal them all before it's too late? [publisher's blurb]
