Truth and honesty
Good book to curl up on the couch and read. Smooth reading. Touching storyline.
Janet and David die in a car accident leaving behind their adopted infant Vietnamese daughter Ahn. Janet's sister Hallie Weston and David's brother Nathan Brock agree to raise their niece together in spite of their work history and his crushing her crush of him; that is until they find new adoptive parents for Ahn. While struggling with honoring their siblings' wish re the baby, Hallie and Nathan also battle their feelings for one another. Nathan wants to marry Hallie and raise the baby together. Hallie having been hammered by Nathan prefers to remain an aunt and seek new parents for Ahn. This is an intriguing family drama with a romantic subplot that takes a backseat over what to do about Ahn. The infant's developmental issues seem genuine as are Hallie's doubts. Although readers will immensely disbelieve that international photojournalist Nathan will choose to abruptly stay in Boston to be father to his niece and wannabe husband to Hallie, fans will enjoy this entertaining contemporary as the adults have no time to grieve their respective loss since the baby comes first.
