Overview

From the author of RESCUE ME, a romance novel about hope, courage and a love that almost wasn't.

For anyone who can't get enough of Suzanne Brockman, Susan Wiggs,
Sandra Kitt, and Kathleen Korbel... "Raphaela's Gift" is your next
feel-good read!

Plot Summary:
One desperate father.
One determined therapist.
A very special little girl.
And the gift that will change their lives.


Dr. Garret Damiani, a master at denying his feelings, is determined to heal his daughter. When he arrives at Mountain Rise, a camp for autistic children, he is
cold, distant and uncomfortable. But Garret's
self-protective tactic is difficult to maintain when he confronts Faith
LeFeuvre, their art therapist. She is secretly fighting her own battle, yet
when she meets Garret and his daughter, an instant and potent bond draws her to
them. With steadfast determination, she sets out to heal the Damiani family and
force Garret from his spiney shell...not knowing in the process she will also
heal herself.


Can a love forged in the heat of a sultry summer survive
the pressure of adversity and past tragedy or will it shatter into fragments?

    Touching Read

    A heartfelt story about the loss of love, connecting with your child, and finding a real love to share your life with that understands you. I thought the book was a little wordy and repetitive at times, but overall a wonderful read that touched my heart.

    The pointtt

    I loved the writng I was able to follow all the characters in the book and not have to go back and reread the story again. I didn't get lost. Let me try to explain, it was like step one then step two, the story flow from the beginning to the end. I loved the story and how the author wrote the book. Great reading!!
