A Sheltered Life
Connor Munro has been robbed. The fifteen-year-old was minding his own business when a gang of street kids swooped in, stole his Walkman, and battered his pride. Filled with resentment toward these poor neighborhood brats, Connor has no idea that he will soon become intimately linked to society's underbelly in a way he never imagined possible by way of a dark family secret. A complete stranger named Jesse enters the picture; Jesse is a homeless teen with leukemia, and he requires a bone marrow transplant to save his life. Connor becomes inexplicably linked to the ailing young man, and soon it becomes apparent that they are not strangers at all. Connor's mother, Fiona, watches as her son begins to learn the truth, and she helps him face the facts about their family's history. In assisting Connor in his own battle, Fiona must confront the demons she has kept hidden since his birth. Can her family handle the truth? In this touching novel, family comes in all shapes and sizes, and two strangers can help each other find love, support, and salvation.
