About the Book
From a USA Today bestselling author comes a gripping story of mystery, romance, and pulse-pounding suspense.
How can she save the little girl next door from being exploited if nobody believes her?
Grace used to try to save people, but that was before she realized how powerless she is. Now, she avoids emotional ties, working from her secluded cabin, content with her aloneness. When eight-year-old Lily starts hanging around, Grace enjoys her company but carefully keeps her distance—until she discovers the girl is being exploited. Little though she wants to, she must get involved, even if it means risking her own safety to secure Lily’s.
Andrew can’t help but be drawn to his new neighbor and her beautiful foster child. When he learns about Lily’s disturbing history, he offers to help Grace prove her suspicions about the girl’s father. But the more they learn, the more puzzling Lily’s history seems. They work together to unravel the mystery, determined to ensure Lily ends up with a family who loves her.
But Lily’s father isn’t giving up his muse—or his obsession—that easily. He believes Lily is rightfully his, and he’ll do anything to get her back.
Don’t miss this thrilling page-turner, the latest in the addictive Coventry Saga.
Touch of Innocence Excerpt 7
“You are needed here,” she said. “You have a home here. You are loved here.”
“I can’t do it anymore. I’m sorry.”
“These girls… Nobody connects with them like you do.”
Grace didn’t doubt that was true. Hers was a unique ability, no question. But to connect and to heal—those were different gifts. She’d only been given the first. And without the second…
“I can’t help them.” Grace leaned against the counter and crossed one arm across her middle. “You know it and I know it.”
“You can help them,” Mama Lucy said. “You’ve helped many of them. Your insights are invaluable.”
“My insights are useless. I’ve proved that.”
“What happened with Celia—”
“No.” She couldn’t go there. Couldn’t stand to hear the girl’s name. “I can’t talk about her. I won’t.”
“It wasn’t your fault.” Mama Lucy’s words, delivered so many times before, held only compassion. “You can’t save everyone.”
“I can’t save anyone. I can barely save myself. I’m sorry. I can’t. You’ll have to find somebody else.”
Before her old friend and mentor could respond, Grace hung up, hating herself for her rudeness but knowing she had no other choice. Mama Lucy wouldn’t stop trying to change her mind, but Grace wouldn’t be convinced. What happened with Celia…
She wouldn’t survive that again.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Aside from her family and her Savior, USA Today bestselling author Robin Patchen has two loves—writing and traveling. If she could combine them, she’d spend a lot of time sitting in front of her laptop at sidewalk cafes and ski lodges and beachside burger joints. She’d visit every place in the entire world—twice, if possible—and craft stories and tell people about her Savior. Alas, time is too short and money is too scarce for Robin to traipse all over the globe, even if her husband and kids wanted to go with her. So she stays in Texas, shares the Good News when she can, and writes to illustrate the unending grace of God through the power and magic of story.
