Single parent Nick DiMarco is out to prove something to himself and to the world. His ex-wife abandoned him and his two children, sad and shy Heather and wheelchair bound Jason, to lead the life of a socialite. Now, Nick's in law school and working two jobs to get what he wants. But when Heather's guidance counselor, Amanda Carson, calls to tell him his daughter is suicidal, Nick must make difficult choices to save his family. Further complicating these issues are the feelings both Nick and Amanda, a woman too much like his ex, develop for each other. Intense emotional scenes, a frightening look at teenage suicide and a love story that won't be denied all combine to make this a powerful, heart-wrenching drama.

If you like romance novels about teacher student relationships, teacher romance, as well as single parent romance and opposites attract romance, read more of Kathryn Shay books with an educational theme: A PRICE WORTH PAYING, PROMISES TO KEEP, THE EDUCATORS series and THE BAYVIEW HEIGHTS series.
