Iasiah and his twin brother Tucker run a vet clinic and are looking for a kennel keeper. His mother recommends a friends grandaughter Laura Townsend who is brain damaged after diving into a river and hitting her hit of a rock. She can only perform simple tasks and number and long words give her problems. Iasiah is reluctant at first to take Laura on but after talking to her and seeing how good she is with the animals he decides it's a good idea. The story continues from there but I do no want to say more and give the whole story away.
The story is very sweet and worth reading. It's got the Ahhhhhh factor!

I have enjoyed all of Ms. Anderson's books, some more than others, but all were worth the read, and this brothers series has been totally enjoyable. I am sure that critics are right that there are probably MORE obstacles than are presented, but this is fiction and I know that not every heroine in real life is drop dead gorgeous and not every dream man is perfect like these guys, I know I am not reading about real life and enjoy the fantasy. Why can't this also be a world where handicapped is not as hard as in real life? I think the idea of addressing it and giving people an opportunity to think about it spreads a little more compassion and understanding than we have right now. Every time I write a review after reading the nay sayers who have written before me I just want to point out its fiction!!! Perhaps these people who find these books wanting ought to begin shopping in higher literary planes and leave the simple stuff to us more simple readers???
Isaiah Coulter is the youngest Coulter -- successful, attractive, and very desirable. Isaiah has his life planned, and his planned life does not include a wife - at least not anytime soon! Veterinary medicine is a demanding field!
Laura Townsend is attractive and very lonely. Once Laura Townsend was an environmental scientist, today she is happy to be a kennel keeper at the Coulter Animal Clinic. Laura Townsend refuses to dwell on life's `what ifs' and instead lives each day within a sunny outlook.
Ms. Anderson develops a wonderful, warm romance for Isaiah and Laura. Isaiah realizes his life is empty and little Miss Sunshine is the antidote. Laura would love to be in Isaiah's life, but Laura is also a realist. She has aphasia, five years ago a diving accident damaged her brain's left lobe, and sadly Laura realizes she must deny Isaiah. What Isaiah needs is an accomplished woman, who can complete his potential, he must not settle for less.
MY SUNSHINE is an admirable read. Catherine Anderson writes with respect and shrewdness for the aphasia condition. Again I discovered Anderson can bring her reader a new understanding for a perplexing condition. Anderson's books are always worthy of notice and MY SUNSHINE is very noticeable. Grade: A-

Another thing I love about Anderson's books is that she writes so well that it litterally pulls you into the story to the point that you stop to go do something and you're shocked to find out that hours have passed since you picked up the book, it's amazing, you really do feel like your right there with the characters.
Reading Catherine's books have really reaffirmed my faith in love, being hurt everytime I've ever been in a relationship I can totally understand where her lady's are comming from. When I'm feeling down in that way all I have to do is pick up one of her books and when I'm done I realize I'm not alone. She's the perfect voice.
I must say that while I really like this book, it is not Catherine's best. The premise of the story is unique, and the storyline had so much promise, but the book was slow the first 200+ pages. And there was so much concentration of vet work. I mean sure, healing animals is important, but the way Isaiah's work was portrayed, it was blown out of proportion.
This book could have been shortened by at least a hundred pages. It takes Isaiah so long to realize that he loves Laura (it happens somewhere at 300+ pages). Had the story been shortened by at least a hundred pages, and had the romance started earlier, at least somewhere before 300+ pages, this would have been a great story.
Nonetheless this is a good and enjoyable read, the last hundred pages are wonderful, and five star worthy.
STAY AWAY unless you want to be bored to absolute tears.
