On the cusp of fifteen, pretty Theresa is the town's most sought-after babysitter - cheerful, beloved, adored by children and animals, but also a solitary soul with an already complex understanding of human nature. She is Titania among her fairies, the one person to call on for help with a child in extreme distress. Theresa does not doubt her power over the fathers of her adoring charges either, whose potential lechery Theresa toys with like a kitten with yarn. Yet during this unforgettable summer, it is her cousin Daisy, a frail little creature with glittery shoes and worrying bruises that don't heal, in whom Theresa invests her greatest love. Infused with suppressed passion, disappointment, and enduring hope, Alice McDermott's wonderful new novel reveals a world seen afresh through the eyes of an utterly seductive girl.

The sexy attorney made the quiet nights and peaceful days away from the city ripe with a passion she'd never experienced. But was his mysterious nature hiding something? Or had her past merely taught her to find something wrong with this man who was oh-so-right—as a husband and as a daddy?

History changed its course one insignificant day and only God knows why. Only several years later will the truth be known. It took years full of hardship to understand that every event must happen to bring the desired result to God's plan for the world. God set destiny in action by choosing someone unknown, crippled, and abandoned by the world. She would be the example of how he expected His children to serve Him. There would be no compromise or discussion about His decision because He knew who would be obedient to His training. The timing was perfect to save a dying world from complete disaster. Not everyone listened to His warning, but, if only one person was saved, his mission would be accomplished. Bonnie was renamed Mercy when she learned the secret to serving her master. It was Mercy who was willing to sacrifice the material things in life to honor God. As God takes her through the journey of her life, she begins to understand why she walked alone with only God to help her. The Cloak of Humility is the story of her journey from the life that she knew to a life walking with God!
