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?
This was a lovely book and I love how the author compares life to lilacs, where the biggest blooms come only after the harshest winters. There were multiple stories in this book that involved only a few people but all their lives were intertwined with one another. All had, had very "harsh winters," or periods in their lives and as their stories are told they begin to bloom with the help of one another's love.
This book is a page turner as the more you get into the book the more you have to know what will happen next.
Stars out of 5 : 4 A bit of a slow start but once it gets going you don't want to put it down. Well worth the read; another great book from Irene Hannon.
