"...it was who we were, and not what we had..." These were Rand's words, one of the four children who formed and family in the orphanage on Bishop Street. In spite of the beatings and awful living conditions, the children had love and strength while they were together. Each one found a way to hide from the awful fear of being alone when they left Bishop Street, but it wasn't until they reconnected that they would have victory. As the story unfolds, we learn about life styles foreign to most of us. I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read.
