A family for them all?

Ten-year-old Daniel has had a rough year. His mother's unexpected death has landed him in a small South Carolina town, in the custody of his uncle, elementary school principal Joshua White. Josh is a pro when it comes to dealing with other people's kids, but he can't get through to Daniel.

The only other child in the school who's having a worse time is Daniel's classmate Becky. Her mother, Amy Loar, left a troubled marriage and is now fighting to rebuild her career in Atlanta while Becky stays with her grandmother in Sweetbrook.

Amy and Josh were friends as teenagers…with a hint of something more. Now they find themselves thrown together as they try to help Becky and Daniel. Coming together as a family would be the best thing for the children—but can Amy ever trust a man again?

    intriguing family drama

    In Sweetbrook, South Carolina, elementary school principal Joshua White struggles to raise his abused nephew Daniel, who detests the small town and wants nothing to with his uncle as just the latest dumping on a relative. Every time Josh tries to help Daniel acclimate, he fails. --- After dealing with abuse, Amy Loar drops her daughter Becky at her mother¿s home in Sweetbrook while she tries to make a career in Atlanta. Becky has problems adjusting with all the recent traumas in her life and soon gets into a fight with fourth grade classmate Daniel. Their feud grows until Amy is forced to come to town. For some reason, perhaps a deep understanding of Daniel¿s internal demons, Amy seems to reach him where as Josh fails to have the slightest positive vibe with the son of his sister. On the other hand Josh seems to have done well with Amy¿s daughter. As they work together to help one another raise their respective child, these childhood friends fall in love, but each knows the kids must come before their own needs. --- A FAMILY FOR DANIEL is an intriguing family drama that focuses on the impact of abuse on adults and children. The lead couple, their children, and other support players like her mom and teachers bring to life the small South Carolina town that shows it takes a village to raise a child. Though the woes are cleaned up relatively easy (this is a romance), fans of powerful contemporary tales with social issues will want to read Anna DeStefano¿s fine story.--- Harriet Klausner
