"One Perfect Spring"
By Irene Hannon
I always look forward to a new book by this author, as I KNOW it will be a fast paced tale, that compels me to read it at once and not put it down until the last page has been read. This book was no exception !
Claire Summers, an independent, single mom is doing her best to make the best of the mess that confronted her life. Workaholic, Keith Watson, has only one interest- his job, UNTIL a letter from Claire's eleven year old daughter reaches his desk and changes everything. As the executive assistant to a philanthropic business man, Keith is used to fielding requests for donations, however this letter stands out , in that NO money is being requested. All this young girl desires, is for her neighbor to find her long lost son, and she is unable to do it by herself. She needs his help! Although Keith is not eager to comply with these wishes. he digs into this assignment with his usual results oriented style. Little does he realize, how involved he will become with Claire and how "unusual" the results will be. Who would ever think that one child's desire would bring love and hope to so many lives??? including his own!!
The characters in this book had me intrigued from the first chapter. They were realistically described in such a way, that I immediately could feel their joys, hurts, pain and confusion. Their challenges became mine and I became a cheerleader for them in tough times.
The plot twists and has so many unexpected turns that at times, I had to stop and think! How is this going to end?? Where is this leading??
All in all, this book is a tenderhearted story that proves to us that life can bloom after the harshest season!! It truly is a story of miracles resulting from faith.
Definitely a five star book!!
