A Gift for Chloe by Susan Lohrer

Her carefully ordered world is turning upside down…
Linda is the one who holds her family together. She’s an absolute rock—at least, she was until her daughter announced her pregnancy (wait, isn’t 40 way too young to become a grandmother?) and delivered the news that the baby has Down syndrome.
Now she finds herself standing in the middle of a bookstore, floundering to regain her equilibrium as her carefully ordered world tumbles willy-nilly around her. Instead of making a relatively simple decision about which book to buy, she’s spent an hour waffling between two titles and trying (and failing) to come to grips with this new reality she hasn’t had nearly enough chance to prepare for. It’s not that she hasn’t already fallen head over heels in love with baby Chloe, but this is something she’s not equipped to handle—she can’t even choose a self-help book on the subject, for goodness’ sake.
Her friends and the medical professionals blithely insist she’ll forget all about special needs the moment she sees her grandchild for the first time. Even the too-good-to-be-true, optimistic fellow customer she encounters in the aisle of the bookstore seems to think she’s worried over nothing.
This handsome stranger is obviously compassionate and knows a lot about Downs, but Linda is in no way interested in striking up a conversation with him, let alone a friendship, no matter how intriguing he is… until he performs a random act of kindness she can’t ignore.

The synopsis is almost as long as the book. So glad this was a free one.

Susan Lohrer has another winner in this delightful short, sweet story. Linda is about to become a grandmother to baby Chloe, who has Down Syndrome. While searching for information to help prepare her for a granddaughter with special needs, she meets an appealing outdoorsy man in a bookstore. Before long she's wondering if he's just being helpful, or is he hitting on her. When Linda is ready to pay for the book she selected, she's in for a surprise. Dan is much more than “outdoorsy”, and Linda is definitely interested.

This isnt a book at all. Its a 5 or 6 page description of what you think you are about to read. Suddenly it just ends. I kept thinking it was some joke, looking for the "full" book. What a waste of time. Glad it was free, or i would demand a refund. Will not be looking for any other titles by this author. I wouldnt even consider her an author. Elementary school children write longer stories.
