    Trite and cliche

    When Allie's brother and sister-in-law die in a car accident, Allie is left to raise their adopted son, Danny. Her brother also left her with an enormous debt. Allie wonders how her brother got into debt, and suspects that he may have been cheating. She hates the idea of selling the family farm to raise the needed money. She also wonders what Danny's biological parents looked like.
    Danny's biological uncle, Derrick, is in town, trying to fulfill the wish of his dying sister; to know that Danny is loved and well-cared for. He plans to observe from afar, without disrupting any lives, but circumstances allow him to meet Allie and become involved in her life. He is afraid that Allie will hate him for being deceitful.
    The story is a pleasant read, easy to follow, and well plotted. Yet, the emotional content is trite and overblown. Derrick isn't sneaky enough to be considered dishonest. He is supposedly in an emotional turmoil about bearing a false witness, but there isn't anything that is really false about what he is doing. His sister used drugs, came to the Lord, quit using drugs as easily as changing her clothes, and must now be punished by God for her sins by facing an early death. Again, this is melodramatic, unrealistic, and overused. Allie was engaged, found out her fiancé was cheating, and now can't stand dishonesty, but does not have a convincing reason to reflect those reactions onto Derrick. She also doesn't have a convincing reason not to forgive her fiancée for having one little temptation caused by a case of cold feet, especially since he was only caught kissing the other woman, not sleeping with her. The problems are all typical soap opera plots with typical, easy resolutions. It was a pleasant story, but it's one that already been told to the point of being cliché. For a more unique story, I recommend Stars Shine After Dark,
