Additional Information

From the New York Times bestselling author of Beach Colors and Breakwater Bay comes this heartwarming story of love, family, and redemption. Two young girls pledged to be best friends forever. Separated by circumstance and hurt, they are reunited years later as they struggle to put their differences aside for the sake of a special little girl—perfect for fans of Kristin Hannah, Elin Hilderbrand, and Karen White.

One woman struggling to hold on to what she has,

One woman learning to forgive

Their lives entwined by one little girl. 

Sarah Hargreave is anxious to finalize the adoption of her foster daughter Leila. Once a foster child herself, Sarah longs to become Leila’s “forever” family and give her all the love and stability she was denied in her own childhood. When Leila’s biological mother suddenly reappears and petitions the court for the return of her daughter, Sarah is terrified she’ll lose the little girl she loves to the drug addicted mother who abandoned her.

Having grown up in foster care, Ilona Cartwright fights for the rights of children who have no one to fight for them. But to Sarah she is Nonie Blanchard, who grew up in the same group foster home as Sarah. They’d promised to be best friends forever, then Nonie was adopted by a wealthy family, and Sarah never heard from her again. Sarah still hurts from the betrayal. But Nonie harbors her own resentment toward the past. 

Mistrustful of each other, the two women form a tenuous alliance to ensure Leila’s future, but when Leila’s very survival is on the line, they’ll have to come to terms with their own feelings of hurt and rejection to save the child they both have come to love.

Although the setting is a a small beach town, this is anything but a sweet and fluffy beach book. While there is some romance between two of the characters, it is secondary to the main plot which is the emotional roller coaster of a single foster mother, Sarah, who is in the process of adopting her 4-year-old foster child, Leila. Sarah is a survivor of the foster care system, and she seeks to avoid the same nightmares for Leila.

WARNING: This may be a difficult book for adults who have been victims of child abuse and/or neglect, and who have been through "the system." One of the scenes in the book describes horrific conditions of neglect for three little boys. Throughout the book Leila and Sarah are subjected to the emotional turmoil that results from court-ordered visitations with Leila's biological mother, who is a drug addict (among other things). While the subject matter is as valid as any other, and is handled sensitively, the author hasn't shied away from... Read more
This book surprised me. Not a little romance novel although it did give a good look at different kinds of relationships. I found the book to be a thought provoking, attention grabbing, page turner usually only found in crime-mystery novels.
A good truthful, clear look at our foster care system from the perspectives of the children in foster care, the case workers, lawyers and the foster care givers.(foster parents.) A good cold-water-in- the-face look at the system. Hopefully the right people will read and learn from it.
This book started slowly but after a while became a page turner. It was a sensitive look into the foster care adoption system and all the turmoil it entails for all involved. The sense of community of Sarah's friends and supports was heartwarming. A great story of family and friends pulling together for the common good of a small girl.
