This book will touch your heart, truly. Two young siblings whose mother died were taken in by their cruel drunkard of an aunt who lives in a makeshift shack in a horrible area near Lisbon, Portugal. Their way of making money is to beg or steal. It's a sad life, but the brother tries to keep his very young sister happy with his love and protection. His love for her is so very touching that, even though you know his stealing is wrong, you root him on because he does it to keep the 3 of them alive. He has a conscience about it, instilled by some missionaries... Perhaps those are LDS missionaries, but it's not mentioned.
God seems to be steering things for the children, and a married couple who had something stolen from them by Miguel (the brother).
Generally I read a totally different sort of book, but this was a great change, and worth the read. I whole-heartledly recommend it.
This book had a very slow start for me. It seemed I was observing the main characters from a distance, saw what was taking place, but never got close enough to care much. This all changed in the last half, however. When the children meet the Andrades, the story took off, and I became hooked. This part became so good, it made up for the start. It was indeed a wonderful story.
