    Heartwarming romance

    Kara Martinson is a woman in her mid-30’s who has been rejected by everyone that ever mattered to her. Except her son and granddaughter. Meeting Harrison Canton, the father of her son, at her gallery opening in Seattle to find out he never even knew about the baby. His mother had lied to him all these years. Now that she knows Harry never rejected her, it is like a chance to start over and heal all her past hurt but forgiving that kind of betrayal by her parents and her child’s grandmother is not that easy. When push comes to shove, Kara’s instincts tell her to run and run far despite the fact that her grown son who is also a single parent needs her to help him with his daughter with Down Syndrome. This was a beautiful story of loss, love, pain, redemption, disabilities, acceptance and inclusion. Kara has a long way to go to be happy and whole and to be able to forgive her parents and Harry’s mom. Harry says and does all the right things or so it seemed but even he has to learn how to love Kara the way she needs to be loved rather than trying to get her to fit into a certain mold that everyone in their hometown tries to make her. Kara is way to carefree and spontaneous to ever fit into any stereotype. Her granddaughter Jessica makes the story more complete by demonstrating that people with Down are very happy people with feelings and interests and abilities just like everyone else. The characters in this story go through so much. Unfortunately, the parents in this story don’t grow up as much as Kara and Harry do but at least they do and do it enough for both them and their parents. This is one of those stories that you can identify with since their lives aren’t perfect just like real life but it shows you that with the right person by your side and the right view on life, you can find happiness by knowing yourself and accepting yourself and your partner the way were you meant to be.

    Great Romance

    I would have to say this book wasn't what I expected. The beginning starts out immediately into the plot. Kara and Harry went to high school together. Each one had a crush on each other, but nether knew about it. Kara has a 27 year old son who just happens to be Harrys son also. Harry just didn't know anything about it. This book shares the characters pain in trying to figure out what happened and what they do to make it right in their world. It made me cry, it made me rejoice. Overall it was a great book, well written and I would truly recommend.
