Molly Murphy Sullivan is looking forward to the approaching
holidays. She has a family of her own now: she and Daniel
have a baby son and twelve-year-old Bridie is living with
them as their ward. As Molly and the children listen to
carolers in the street, they hear a lovely voice, the voice
of an angel, and see a beggar girl huddled in a doorway,
singing "Away in a Manger." Bridie is touched by the girl's
ragged clothes and wants to help her out if they can. They
give her a quarter, only to watch a bigger boy take it from
her. But Molly discovers the boy is the girl's older
brother. They've come from England and their mother has
disappeared, and they're living with an aunt who mistreats
Molly quickly realizes that these children are not the usual
city waifs. They are well-spoken and clearly used to better
things. So who are they? And what's happened to their

for the answers to these questions, she gets drawn into an
investigation that will take her up to the highest levels of
New York society.
