Publisher's Summary

Dori Grant is no stranger to hardship. As a young single mother in the gossip-fueled town of Blessings, Georgia, she's weathered the storm of small-town disapproval most of her life. But when Dori loses everything within the span of an evening, she realizes she has no choice but to turn to her neighbors.

Everyone says the Pine boys are no good, but Johnny Pine has been proving the gossips wrong ever since his mother died and he took over raising his brothers. His heart goes out to the young mother and child abandoned by the good people of Blessings. Maybe he can be the one to change all that....

    "Another Excellent book by Sharon Sala"
    What did you love best about I'll Stand by You?

    I loved the fact that it was a sweet, heartwarming story of two young people who have faced tough times and found love when they least expected it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I'll Stand by You?

    So many memorable moments in this book, hard to pick just one. Instead I will pick one of my favorite characters Johnny's youngest brother Beep. He is sweet and says so many funny and cute things.


    What about Amy Rubinate’s performance did you like?

    I thought she did a great job narrating the book, and I look forward to hearing other books read by her.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I got caught up in Johnny and Dori's story - it made me smile, it made me laugh and it did make me cry a little bit.


    Any additional comments?

    I LOVE Sharon Sala's books, she is an amazing writer. IMO if you love to read heartwarming stories set in a small, friendly town, full of Southern Gals, "gossip" and interesting characters then this book is for you!

    "Very Good Read"

    Gripping storyline and action packed love story triumphs with friendship and kindness over the pettiness, and bigotry of small town life.
