Mom for Matthew based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Texas schoolteacher Grace Stafford refuses to believe the official record that her grandfather deserted the military during World War II. She plans to prove her assertion that instead his plane went down off Galveston, Texas...................... Following intensive research, Grace begins diving in search of the lost plane. Meanwhile her efforts could cost Zeke Rosetti¿s oil company Kemper Offshore Oil Reserch and Development a bundle if their drilling is delayed by her diving. He owes Kemper and the firm because they are so cooperative with his being a single father of a handicapped child Matthew. Instead of a long winded court suit, he decides to expedite her efforts by helping her. As they seek the evidence she so desires, Zeke and Grace fall in love, but he fears how she will react when she learns that he is raising a young deaf son whose mother deserted him as an ailing infant...................... This is a wonderful contemporary romance starring two wonderful protagonists, a fine supportive cast (except for the social worker and his ex) that digs deep into the issue of raising a handicapped child. The story line is fabulous as the audience along with the wonderful male lead wonder if Grace¿s love for Zeke will allow her to not just love Matthew, but to cope with his deafness. The Navy-sea salvage subplot is deep and powerful, but it is the relationships that turn Roz Denny Fox¿s into a powerhouse...................... Harriet Klausner
Whenever I read a romance novel, I always find the time to laugh. The lengths people go through in order to try to make things right never ceases to amuse me. This book was no exception. Both the main characters and the ones on the side provide humor, grief, sweetness, and of course love a mix that is essential for a romance. I enjoyed reading this book, though I have to say that it could use some more meat. The pace goes a little quickly for my taste. If I was able to vote it a 3 1/2 stars, I would, but I can't vote in between. So if you want a quick read, pick this up, it's cute, funny, and at times exasperating. It makes a nice read.
