Welcome to Quarry Hall, where the wounded find shelter and healing, and train to share that healing and the lessons they have learned with other hurting souls.
Quarry Hall is the mansion home of the Arc Foundation, a philanthropic foundation dedicated to finding the people who have fallen through the cracks and give badly needed assistance, one person at a time. The daughters of Quarry Hall are the walking wounded, and still have some growing and healing to do as they face a wounded world. Accompanied by their guard dogs, trained in self-defense, aided by innovative technology and with intelligence and military connections, they put their lives on the line for the One who did the same for them.
After a rough assignment catching people out to destroy battered women’s shelters, Anne needs a break. Being assigned to observe operations at Common Grounds Legal Clinic seems like a cake assignment. Xander Finley, the head lawyer, is a friend of Joan. The clinic is already supported by the Arc Foundation, so Arc is simply expanding its support.
But then Anne is carjacked, and her guard dog, Argus, is shot. Off balance, worried about Argus, and wearing borrowed clothes, things keep getting worse. Face-to-face with someone from her painful past and feeling antagonism from Xander’s employees, Anne stumbles into one problem after another. Her frustration grows when allies became enemies, and she is accused of entrapment and then attempted murder. How come prayer is her last resort, when it should have been her first reaction to every problem?
