I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I forget how much I enjoy Kristin Hannah's writing because I don't see a lot of press for her. I like to compare her to Nicholas Sparks but with happy endings. I loved all the characters in this story. She made me absolutely hate the ones that were bad and love the ones who deserved it. The story line was magnificent with just enough angst to keep you on your toes. I'm going to make sure I put her books in my regular rotation. I wholeheartedly recommend this book
About This Item
Angie hires Lauren Ribido because she sees something special in the seventeen-year-old. They quickly form a deep bond, and when Lauren is abandoned by her mother, Angie offers the girl a place to stay. But nothing could have prepared Angie for the far-reaching repercussions of this act of kindness. Together, these two women—one who longs for a child and the other who longs for a mother’s love—will be tested in ways that neither could have imagined.

Angela was a daddy's little girl and always "the princess" of the family. Her marriage collapsed when she was unable to have a child, lost a child, lost a baby back to a teenage girl that changed her mind. When Lauren came into her life, she was very hesitant to reach out, but couldn't help herself. She ended up remarrying her husband, becoming the "grandmother" to Lauren's newborn. Lauren was very special and smart. Her mother took off with yet another strange man and left Lauren @ 17 years of age to fend for herself.

Even though romance was a secondary theme in this story I felt it was a powerful engrossing book about two strong females. I couldn't predict how things were going to develop. Angela unsuccessfully tried for many years to have a child. Lauren lives with an alcoholic mother. When both women hit bottom their paths intersect.
