I read this in one evening (staying up WAY past my bed time, oops!) It was a lovely book, better than the last few free books I've read, I couldn't put it down! It's a "nice warm fuzzy feeling" kind of a book, other than the incidence from Libbys past in which her daughter was conceived, which is dealt with fairly early on in the book, but is referred to a few times throughout the story, which some readers might find a bit distressing. But that aside it's an easy read, despite that storyline. Libby has struggled all her adult life, she has done everything she can to bring Nicole up in the best way she can, despite having no family or friends to back her up, but she comes to the realisation that her best just isn't enough and that she isn't managing to shelter Nicole from how hard life is, she can't provide everything she needs for her and her daughter is really struggling socially, and the only thing she can do about it is make more time for her, which she can't, keeping down 2 jobs is still barely keeping a roof over their heads! So she decides she has to go home, to the man that, in her darkest hour, when she needed her daddy the most, threw her out of his home and told her not to come back, but she's desperate and despite the fact he STILL doesn't want her, she heads there anyway, with no other choice!

Everything is still a struggle for Libby, she wants to finish school and find somewhere to go where she and her daughter can feel safe, she doesn't want to fall in love with the man next door and his daughter, who's the same age as Nicole, she wants her Dad to just talk to her, but she plods on with life anyway, hoping never to have to bump into the man responsible for Nicole's existence, she HAS to be out of there as soon as she has her high school diploma!

This was a great contemporary romance. I loved the strength in Libby's character. After everything she has been through - mother and brother dying, father kicking her out of the house, struggling to care for herself and her daughter Nicole - she still cared about protecting others. The romance between her and Gibson was great. I always like the characters in my book to be realistic, I don't like it when they come off as too perfect. The author nailed it in this book. All of the characters were likable, but yet realistically flawed. Each had their own insecurities and weaknesses that made it feel like I was spying on real-life neighbors rather than just reading about them in the pages of the book.
This one pulled at my heart, but it's not an emotional cry fest either.
It was a fun read that will give you faith in the strength of families, forgiveness, and of small communities helping each other.

All I can say about this book is give it a read - it is well worth it. I would have no hesitation in recommending it. How a father turns away his daughter who is 17 and is pregnant (not by her choice) - she comes back home 8 years later with her daughter as times have got hard for her. Her father does not want her in the house, but while he is out she gets in and finds the house is filthy. She works hard to clean the house but her father will not talk to her. Please give this book a go - well worth it

What a simply delightful story which touches on a few family issues. Mainly family bereavement which takes time to heal.Also rape which results in an unwanted pregnancy, but turns out to bring so much happiness to everyone in the story especial the girls grandfather. The emotions that this story brings is so real it had me in tears on many occasions, and also laughter.Great read.

I really enjoyed this book! A strong story line, and above all else........no sex passages on every page. The story of a young girl having to support herself and her child without the backup of family is heartfelt. The only way she can provide a roof over their heads is to go home, to a father who through her out.
The ending is lovely.
This is a good read. - enjoy

What a lovely contemporary romance. Well written and paced, with nicely developed characters. You really cared about them. Some parts of the novel was a bit slow in the middle where I felt frustrated, wanting Libby and Gibson to get over their hurdles with each other and get together as a romantic couple. I liked how their children were involved in the story as much as their were, emphasising how important their children were to their lives. I did feel the story was a little dated, transported back to the 1980/90's because of the description of the surrounding area, the town lives and their small town attitudes, but I think they may have been a reflection of how lives are in a small town. For a nice romantic read, pick this one up.

This book has a really great love story shining throughout, not just with a couple finding love but also with a family reconnecting their love for each other and although the book touches on dark times with a bereavement and a pregnancy due to rape, it doesn't go into too much detail to upset anyone. I could not put this book down and what to me is a sign of a good book is that months after reading it i can tell you exactly what happened and how i felt, so many books i see sitting on my kindle that i have read and i look at it and think, i cant remember you. This truly is worth a read
