We never know how God may lead us. The twists and turns of life often leave us confused and deflated. For 10-year-old Haley, the unexpected loss of her father was such a twist. When all is lost, a little light in the darkness can make all the difference. The world is a big place for a little girl. For that matter, it’s a pretty big place for anyone who has lost their way.
Hayley finds her solution in a modern day prince, but she can’t pull off this miracle by herself. Nick, an attorney struggling to save his job, wouldn’t seem to be much help to a little girl trying to create a miracle. But life has a way of bringing us the people we need most, at just the right time. Still, there is so much that could go wrong, especially when her headstrong mother doesn’t fall for the prince. But there’s something Hayley doesn’t see coming, something she can’t see. Something she doesn’t want to see, something that hides in the dark where she can’t go, something unspeakable.
Follow Haley’s journey into the light and see how redemption is there for anyone, even the condemned. And see how love can find you-even through the darkness.

Finding Daddy Warbucks was such a cute story. I know that sounds like a strange way to describe an adult book, but that is what it was. It was comic relief and had me chuckling throughout the book.
The story isn’t a deep story and that is one of the things I enjoyed most about it. It came around at a good time for me as I had just completed reading a very serious nonfiction book and need a little pick me up.
I don’t think it would be considered a spoiler if I say that the story is about a young widow with three children and upon hearing the mother tell her sister they could no longer afford to remain in Washington D.C., the children go into action. They begin a mission to find a father, “Daddy Warbucks”.
The writing was good and the characters were from everyday life. I think anyone will enjoy this book. It is light-hearted and definitely worth the time to read.
I am giving Finding Daddy Warbucks by David Hwa five stars.
