A wonderful read. Rachel Ann Nunes is a truly gifted writer. If you care
about love, enjoy being entertained, and want to be carried into a world
of drama and inspiration you must read A Greater Love.
—James Michael Pratt, New York Times
best-selling author of The Last Valentine
A Greater Love provides a powerful glimpse into a world rarely seen
from the comforts of our plush existence. Rachel opens our eyes, hearts,
and souls to a more Christlike view of the plight of homeless children. I
really enjoyed the story.
—Lynda M. Nelson, author of the best-selling
book The Little Red Buckets
In many ways A Greater Love reminds me of Oliver Twist and David Copperfield.
It is one of the few novels that have brought tears to my eyes.
—Kenneth R. Tarr, author of The Last
Days Volume I: The Gathering Storm
Nunes tells her tale in a way that is neither saccharine nor contrived, combining
the earthly realism of this world with the glorious possibilities the Savior
offers us. An intriguing and memorable story.

"No. I’m through running away," she answered in a hushed voice. "I’ve learned enough in these past weeks to know that I can’t be happy without you. You’re part of me. But, please, I thought you were beginning to love Miguel and Sara. I thought you saw how they filled the empty parts of our lives. What changed? Why can’t you tell me?"
"I want to," he agonized. "But there’s something you don’t know, something I hoped you’d never find out. I don’t know how to tell you—or the children." He pressed his knuckles into his temple. "Especially the children."
