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.

Touch of Innocence Excerpt 3
When she stepped into her bedroom, Oliver, her light gray cat, blinked his blue eyes at her from his spot on her bed. He stood, adjusted his position, and settled himself again. After scratching him, she got down on her knees and checked under the bed.
Her house wasn’t that big, and she’d hardly brought anything to fill it. Where could the child…?
She checked in the closet. There on the floor, beside her slippers, lay her favorite mug. Emblazoned with the words Freedom Home for Girls and Women, it was the only souvenir she’d kept from her time there.
Grace snatched it and headed back to the kitchen. She hadn’t talked to Lily about moving her things before, but it was time to mention it. She didn’t like the idea of Lily poking around in the bedroom when Grace wasn’t looking.
By the time she returned to the kitchen, her kettle was whistling. She poured hot water over a tea bag, then added a little honey and some milk. The perfect afternoon treat. With a glass of lemonade for Lily, she returned to the back porch.
The little girl looked up, her emerald eyes bright. She tapped the princess drawing on her coloring book.

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.
