Genre: Contemporary Fiction
Independent single mom Claire Summers is doing her best to make lemonade out of the lemons life has handed her. Workaholic Keith Watson is interested only in the bottom line--until a letter from Claire's eleven-year-old daughter reaches his desk and changes everything.
As the executive assistant to a philanthropic businessman, Keith is used to fielding requests for donations. But the girl isn't asking for money. She wants help finding the long-lost son of a neighbor. As Keith reluctantly digs into this assignment in his usual results-oriented style, he has no idea how involved he and Claire will become--nor how unusual the results will actually be. Who could have guessed that a child's kindhearted request would bring love and hope to so many lives . . . including his own?
Through compelling characters and surprising plot twists, fan favorite Irene Hannon offers this tenderhearted story that demonstrates how life is like lilacs--the biggest blooms come only after the harshest winters.
Irene Hannon packs a ton of emotion into her newest novel. Told from four perspectives it was fun to see how each story would play out and how they all tie together. I found this to be a sweet story filled with romance, emotion and twists that kept me engaged. I just loved Haley, Claire's daughter, she is such a sweet kind heart-ed child. I did find this book to be pretty light and quick read given the theme of adoption that ran throughout the book. Its the perfect weekend book when you don't have a lot of time.
Fans of contemporary fiction and Irene Hannon will enjoy her newest novel!
