Josh arrives at the St. Elizabeth Home for Girls based on a letter he received expecting to meet a young woman name Dolly Cleary. Sister Clavina introduces Dolly who turns out to a young girl who tells Josh she wants him to find her parents because she knows they are alive. Sister Clavina asks Dolly to wait outside and then explains to Josh that Dolly receives an unmarked package every so often but she believes Dolly is better off to assume her parents are dead. Josh tries to leave without seeing Dolly but she catches him outside and the soft hearted Josh can't refuse her request. With no clues he turns to Craig the bartender who knows no Clearys but calls over old timer Hardrock Johnson who recognizes the name. The father Matt is alive but a drunk who left Dolly at the school after her mother was killed in a buggy accident due to his drinking. Josh decides to visit Matt Cleary but finds a large obstacle besides the fact that Matt is a drunk and unfit father. Written by Anonymous

A Nice, Touching Story
17 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A young (12 or 13?) girl living in a Catholic school/home asks Josh to find her parents. The Sister in charge tells him the parents must be dead and discourages Josh from the assignment, which is fine with him. However, the sweet-looking young girl plays on Josh's good nature so he investigates. He discovers the father lives out with a nasty guy on the outskirts of town. About 10 years ago, the father's temper had caused the accidental demise of his wife and out of guilt, he put the baby girl in the care of the sisters, feeling she'd be better off there.

Randall goes to visit the ornery coots, finds them literally fighting and gets the brushoff. However, back in the town the father comes to see Josh. He has a change of heart. However, as he proves, he must change something else and his crude friend Virgil must also learn a few things, if a happy ending is to be had.

This is a nice, touching story. I enjoyed everyone's performance in this.
