Lucy Doesn't Wear Pink by Nancy N. Rue
Growing up is hard when you don't have a mother-but God helps Lucy find her way. Lucy is a feisty, precocious tomboy who questions everything-including God. Understandably, especially after an accident killed her mother, blinded her father, and turned her life upside down. It will take a strong but gentle housekeeper-who insists on Bible study along with homework-to show Lucy that there are many ways to become the woman God intends her to be. Lucy's bossy, career-minded Aunt Karen thinks eleven-year-old Lucy needs a woman's influence. Enter Inez-a housekeeper with a will as strong as Lucy's-and her granddaughter Mora, a girly-girl who is Lucy's polar opposite. Will the girls ever find common ground? Inez just might have the answers when she teaches them the story of Ruth and Naomi.
