This tepid follow-up to Del Fabbro's Christy Award-winning first novel, The Road to Home, continues the saga of journalist Monica Brunetti in South Africa. Having adopted the two sons of her deceased friend Ella Nkhoma, Monica is building a life with her new family. A doctor named Zak Niemand has caught her eye, but he has recently divorced and has a teenage daughter who can't accept her father's blossoming relationship with Monica. At the same time, Monica's former housekeeper, Francina Shabalala, must deal with her own longing for a child as well as issues with her ailing father. The weak plot and shallow characterizations make this a disappointing sequel. South African-born Del Fabbro lives in Texas.
