This story opens with a thirteen-year-old boy whose name is "Appy." Throughout his life he develops a strong and special relationship with a priest and nun at St. Matthew orphanage where he was raised since birth. Even though, he was a disadvantaged child, Appy made his life worthwhile through the choices he made both early on and in adulthood.
He astounds the reader as he grows-up to be an intelligent, considerate, and loving man. The reader will find the story both sad and beautiful. It touches on religion only to the extent that it takes place in a Catholic orphanage where children are raised by priests and nuns until adopted out or reach the age of eighteen. This read takes many twists and turns. Most especially a love story between two unselfish people who set out to make a difference in the lives of children, family, and friends. Unfortunately, a tragic event happens that will change everyone's life. Its main characters weave a sweet and simple encounter with children in different stages of their development from babies and toddlers to teens. It also displays a modernistic touch, wherein, much of the story is communicated through the new digital wave (e-mail).
