Overview

Fans of Debbie Macomber, Susan Wiggs, Kristin Hannah and Robyn Carr will enjoy this emotional novel of romantic women's fiction featuring love and family. A perfect choice for your bookclub!

In her impetuous summer of love, Jenny St. Claire found Luke Sheridan -- her dashing knight in intern's scrubs. But a fast-track future and rigid, ambitious parents drove passion out of Luke's life. And the summer ended, leaving Jenny with a broken heart... and a beautiful son, Danny, to help mend it.

Years later it is tragedy that reunites them -- the father whom a son longs to know, and the mother who has tried desperately to forget. And as Luke and Jenny struggle to ignore the pain and desire reborn in a look and a touch, only the remarkable courage of a young boy -- and the help of a rather unorthodox guardian angel -- can offer them the most precious gift of all: a second chance at the love of a lifetime.

"A warm, moving story of the power of love." Debbie Macomber

This book was amazing in so many ways. It wasn't what I expected and I liked that the author took a fresh, original approach to her story and touched on things I wasn't expecting. I was right with Jenny every step of the way.

I loved this book! I must be honest, at first I wasn't expecting much as a value book but was pleasantly surprised. I laughed, I cried, and found myself glued to this book awaiting Daniel's fate. What a great story of forgiveness, romance and hope. Thanks. for the awesome read and DON'T let the price fool you.

My friend told me to read this book and she was right, it's really, really good. Danny's story turns everyone's life upside down and how the characters fight their way through past heartache and betrayal is very well done. Highly recommend this story.

This is a powerful and heartwarming story of a mother / son relationship. Jen has raised Danny from birth without mentioning his existence to Danny's biological father, Luke. Danny, a teenage boy searches for his father. Upon returning to his mother from his first glance of his father's extravagant life, Danny is hit by a car and slips into a coma. The tragedy brings his mother and father together. Luke, thinking the baby, Danny, had been aborted, is shocked to learn that he has a son. Luke admires Jen's devotion and unconditional love for her son and makes Luke realize he needed to share their lives and it only gets better after that. Endearing characters and a beautiful, spiritual storyline make for a wonderful, inspiring and heartwarming read.

I really enjoyed this story. Danny sets off to find the father he has never known but an accident changes the lives of everyone and secrets from the past come spilling out. This is such a beautifully written story. I don't want to spoil it by telling too much but just have to say if you love a good emotional romance, this is the book for you.

Excellent romance, life and death situation, engaging people to read about. An overall good read!
ermadean More than 1 year ago
The book had a good plot. I love that the book was inspirational about a boy with his guardian angel. I just have trouble when the reuniting of the Daniel's parents while the father was married to another woman. It was wonderful except having an affair while married. In real life that would be at a cost for another family. The author seemed to say it was alright. I realize temptation can overwhelm the common sense when you are put in certain situations.
