Overview

Blaine Graham lost his mother at the tender age of eleven. Grief over the loss drove a wedge between him and his father, and soon proved too difficult for him to deal with. At the age of sixteen, he falsified his papers and made the trip across the border into Canada with his best friend to join the Royal Canadian Air Force and enter the war in Europe as a pilot. Ten years later Captain Graham finds himself flying commercial jets in Boston – his estranged father and his past life all but forgotten, until the day he receives a telegram from his dying father asking him to come home.

The persistent Mara Crawford, a live-in nurse, has experienced her fair share of loss as well. Her attachment to Blaine’s father drives her desire to bring reconciliation between the two men before time runs out for her patient. But her best laid plans didn’t include falling in love again.

    5 star review is misleading

    I read a lot of romance books. This one is shallow, predictable and boring. There is a strong religious tone to the story as well which I only mention because that is not for everyone. If you like uneventful and cheesy stories, then this book is for you. If you enjoy romance for the depth of characters, plot and conflict, and excitement then you will find this story unworthy of your time and money.

    I just finished this book. I cried on and off through the whole book. I loved BLaine. He was able to forgive his father. True it took him 2 weeks after getting too the house. But he made a dying man happy. Plus he found his own happiness
