Book Description

A test of passion...

Dione Williams knew what it was like to be young and pregnant with nowhere to go. Years later, through hard work and sheer force of will, she had provided a good life for her daughter and started a successful home for teenage mothers and their babies. But from the moment television producer Garrett Lawrence began a story on the teen center, Dione's hard-won confidence was shaken. How could a man she found so attractive and intelligent be so cynical about unwed mothers? Battling her conflicted emotions, Dione would have to defend the work she believed in--even if it cost her a love that promised a lifetime of happiness.

A test of love...

Garrett didn't think much of "irresponsible" teen mothers. He knew firsthand the misery of being given away and searching for the acceptance he never could seem to find. Although he found himself drawn closer and closer to Dione because of her independence and passionate determination, his painful past kept getting in the way. Now Garrett and Dione must find their way to each other through a search only the heart can undertake--and only love can bring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book with a powerful storyline 20 May 2010
By Voracious for Books VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Kudos to the author Ms Hill for writing a romance with such an original story in a romance novel. Seventeen year old Dione Williams is a middle class black American. At the beginning of the book her father almost beats her to death when she confesses that she is pregnant. Only her mother's intervention saves her and her mother packs all her clothes into a suitcase; pushes an envelope with money into her hand, and tells her that her father wants her out of the house for good. Years later Dionne has made a success of her life and is the director and founder of 'Chances Are' a home for single young mothers, which encourages mothers to finish their education gives them the support to raise their children and teaches them the skills such as budgeting and cooking to allow them to leave and stand on their own two feet.

When 'Chances Are' runs into financial difficulties Dionne reluctantly allows a production company to produce a documentary on the home, in the hope that the publicity will secure much needed funding. Garrett Lawrence is the producer of a small independant film company who hopes that the documentary will help him secure funding for his company. Garrett has low opinions on single mothers, and starts out with the preconceived idea that people like Dionne are do-gooders who are wasting their time helping irresponsible young women no better than his mother who abandoned him within hours of his birth. Dionne is amazed that she can be attracted to someone who has such a skewered view on her work and ideals, not to mention his lack of understanding of the lack of opportunites open to pregnant young women whose families have abandoned them. Together they manage to overcome their past fears and face the future with some help from Dionne's college student daughter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love means Sacrificing!!!! 18 Nov. 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This novel was beautiful and very sentimental. This novel was about a mother who sacrificed her life, for the happiness and protection of her daughter. She put her needs before others. It shows strong will and determination for teenage mothers to rise above the odds that are pending against them. I was happy to find out that Ms. Williams let herself go long enough to find true love and happiness after what happened to her. I can't imagine anyone's parents disowning them at such a ripe age, all over a mistake. Nevertheless, she put her life together, started a shelter for teenage mothers, and gained respect from others who were apprehensive about the outcome of the teenage mothers. Absolutely excellent!!! Keep up the good work!!

5.0 out of 5 stars SHE HAS DONE IT AGAIN 19 Nov. 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Donna Hill has done it again. The girl has got it going on. She is the best Writter that they have. I laugh and cry with this book. This is definitely on to pass on to book club. I hope that this makes it to the screen of BET. I really love the fact that Dione was able to change Garrett mind about unwed mothers. We are not all bad. I loved the sense of family in this book. My farvorite character was Ms. Besty.
