The novel The Light of Day has Michael Bradley unable to express his deep love for Carlotta Rivera, something he's wanted to tell her for so long. 

From the day 19-year-old Michael Bradley sees a beautiful, sad girl in a Chicago brothel storefront window, he can't get her out of his mind. He returns the next day, but she's not there, and the brothel has shut down. That very same day, an unknowable force leads Reverend Robert Peterson to go to that area of town. He's moved when he sees the sad-looking girl in the shabby storefront. He and his wife come to the rescue of Carlotta Rivera. 

Attorney Michael Bradley is in the hospital after a fall on an icy pavement. He can't believe that his attending nurse is that girl he saw ten years before, Carlotta Rivera. What happiness! Michael yearns to express his long-held feelings for Carlotta, but he can't bring himself to do so. Also, he has to deal with his physician half-brother Duc Le and Ben Peterson, son of Reverend Peterson, who are interested in her. How does Michael respond to a Calling to go into the ministry?
