About NO GOOD ASKING:
What happens when a family nearing its breaking point takes in a troubled child? Eleven-year-old Hannah spends only a week with the Nyland family, but they soon discover that she may be more balm than burden, and that the only thing harder than taking in Hannah may be letting her go.
“Filled with poignant insights into the truth of human hearts.” — Marissa Stapley, bestselling author of Mating for Life
