“Irene Hannon is one great storyteller.”–Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author
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.
“Hannon’s multithread plot is woven beautifully together to create a tapestry that will enchant romantics of all ages.”–Publishers Weekly

i thought this book was fantastic. i’ve been in such a book slump with nothing that i am into and this one caught me from the start. especially the storyline it was something that grabbed you from the beginning. the description says it all but the writing and story flows so amazingly that i didn’t have any dull periods while reading it. even though it was a pretty long book i wanted it to be longer. i felt like the story ended too abruptly. in all in all i really loved this book.
thank you to revell for providing me with a copy of this book for review. i wasn’t compensated in any way.
