No one knows who he is or where he's from. But witnesses throughout San Francisco report a masked man in black is bringing supplies--and badly needed hope--to homeless earthquake survivors. Some believe that the city's gallant rescuer is a gentleman of wealth. But others whisper that he is a working-class man with courage as great as his faith. And rumor has it that one of ...more

Shelves: historical
Love Inspired books are really hit and miss for me; and probably more miss. I might should consider abandoning this area of reading. They all read about the same for me. I have never known a man to notice the slight tilt of my head or the deep sadness lurking in my eyes. The romance is always over done and this one read no different. I can't say it was bad just dripping with longings and personal descriptions that always make me want to skim ahead and say okay she's pretty and you like her now l ...more

After reading the first book "Masked by Moonlight" and giving it a rather poor review I was reluctant to try it's sequel. But I had bought them together and well, I had to give it a fair chance. After all, the sequel was written a couple of years later and things could only improve, right? Yes, RIGHT! The sequel, "Mission of Hope" (which can also stand alone, thank goodness!) is FANTASTIC! I felt that the characters were extremely well developed in this story and REAL. The emotion was gutsy; I e ...more

The 2nd book out of 2. The first being "Masked by Moonlight"

Mission of Hope takes place once again in San Francisco right after the 1906 earthquake.

Quinn, who was a 6 year old in the first book, tries to help get supplies into their unofficial camp.

Nora, who is from the higher class, finds helping fill the needs of the people in this camp rewarding as well.

Pastor Bauer likes helping Quinn and Nora even though they are social opposites.

Action packed, heart warming, heart wrenching romance.

"To tell the truth I don't usually read historical set in the 20th century. But I really enjoyed this book. I loved the faith it took for everyone involved after the great San Francisco earthquake to just survive." From a review posted by an eHarlequin.com member. To read more, go here. ...more

You cannot just change the facts from the first book. That has got to be my biggest pet peeve when reading a book. You wrote the freaking thing! How can you not keep your little ducks in a row?!?!

Quinn was most definitely not one of the two little boys who tried to steal from Grace House...

Allie Pleiter wrote another wonderful, engaging historical romance that was also a page turner. Ms. Pleiter takes readers to some of the hardest times in American history and delivers inspiring, loving stories - she has such a gift.



The book begins 3 months after the April 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire that destroyed the growing port city. Nora is the daughter of the post master; her well to do family lost their home in the disaster as well as Nora's cousin Annette. Nora and her parents

Related to earlier book: Masked by Moonlight."

After reading "Masked by Moonlight," I was excited to read Quinn's story. According tot he author, twenty years has passed between the two books (She said he was 12 when he knew Michael Cunningham, but he's only 26 now...). Though there was suspense in the first book, I thought this one was a bit darker and heavier. The romance was oh so sweet! I loved watching Quinn and Nora's relationship grow into love. I thought the "forbidden love" angle was so

Was an awesome book:)
No one knows who he is or where he's from. But witnesses throughout San Francisco report a masked man in black is bringing supplies--and badly needed hope--to homeless earthquake survivors. Some believe that the city's gallant rescuer is a gentleman of wealth. But others whisper that he is a working-class man with courage as great as his faith. And rumor has it that one of the city's most spirited society belles is helping him against her family's wishes. What can be confirm

I've got my reasons to be jaded and my reasons to avoid romance novels--and especially Christian romance novels--at all cost. Allie Pleiter, whom I met a year or so ago at a conference, is the LONE exception to this rule. She has a God-given gift for writing real love the way it's supposed to be, and for lacing enough action into this book (and its predecessor, Masked by Moonlight) with enough action to make the romance palatable, because it's more like reading a superhero story. Another book th ...more

I loved this book!!

The theme was wonderfully carried out! The characters were enchanting!
I love it all!

This book could have been a disaster easily, but Pleiter did a magnificent job of keeping the reader entertained and attached to the characters!
Must-read!

So inspirational! "Only just!"

I liked Mission Of Hope. The information built into the love story about the earthquake disaster in San Fransisco in 1906 was interesting. The book was full of suspense and romance. A good read.
