Stealing Jake by Pam Hillman

This was a different type of historical fiction and not your usual read. Set in the late 1800's the story begins with 2 boys pick pocketing. A young woman noticing this tries to protect the boys from their victim and this Livy and Jake begin a dance of romance. Without giving too much away the boys pick pocketing earlier in the pick reveal how orphans are being targeted to work in sweatshops and the issue of child labor. Meanwhile Lucy must come clean to Jake about her past knowing he's the sheriff. Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for review.
