Baker & Taylor
In New York with his mother and brother to be with their father, who is undergoing special treatments at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, a young boy watches a woman steal his mother's wallet and ventures into the city's dangerous subway system insearch of the thief

Blackwell North Amer
When her husband was diagnosed with leukemia, Catherine Dornan and their two young sons accompanied him to New York, during the Christmas season, for a life-saving operation.
Hoping to divert the boys from worry about their father, and to temper her own near despair, on Christmas Eve Catherine takes the boys to see Rockefeller Center's famous Christmas tree. When they stop to listen to a street musician, Brian, the younger boy, sees a woman take his mother's wallet, which holds a precious memento his grandmother has just given them, a St. Christopher medal that saved her husband's life in World War II, and which she and Brian believe will save his father's life now.
Unable to get his mother's attention, Brian impulsively follows the woman who has taken the wallet into the city's subways, thereby beginning a journey that will threaten his life and change that of his mother and of the thief, as well.

I read Mary Higgins Clark's book because they are always suspenseful and keeps your attention right to the end. This book had the suspense, but it also made you want to believe in miracles. A really nice story that is well worth being read.
