When a young woman, nine months pregnant and homeless, wanders into an LDS Institute building, the director has no idea how this chance meeting will change his life—and the lives of all who meet her.
Based on a true story, The Ten-Day Daughter is a poignant examination of how we treat the “stranger within the gate,” and a reminder that giving, no matter what the result, can be its own reward.

This book is one of the most tender books I have ever read!
Filled with urgency, love and hope for understanding. Questions of WHY and HOW play throughout the book. Answers seem to be held back. Knowledge never given.
Only the thought of “Be still and know that I am God” AND “is not the giving enough?”
Continual seeking for understanding and hoping for acceptance.
The story that unfolds is reverent and heart-touching.
So many conflicts within one’s soul.
So much love offered, yet never fully accepted.
Sometimes we need to do what we can and then turn it over to the Lord.
Above all we need to remember that “giving, no matter what the results, can be its own reward.”
