Claire Summers is a determined, independent single mother who is doing her best to make lemonade out of the lemons life has handed her. Keith Watson is a results-oriented workaholic with no time for a social life. As the executive assistant to a local philanthropic businessman, he's used to fielding requests for donations. But when a letter from Claire's 11-year-old daughter reaches his desk, everything changes. The girl isn't asking for money, but for help finding the long-lost son of an elderly neighbor.
As Keith digs reluctantly into this complicated assignment, he has no idea how intertwined his life and Claire's will become - nor how one little girl's kindhearted request will touch so many lives and reap so many blessings.Through compelling characters and surprising plot twists, Irene Hannon offers listeners this tenderhearted story of family connections that demonstrates how life is like lilacs - the biggest blooms often come only after the harshest winters.

I loved this story. It is my first read for this author. I found both the story line and narrator to be intriguing and added the right amount of inflection bringing tears to my eyes. If you think you know what's coming you you will be very surprised.
There were so many exciting times, never a dull moment, kept you intrigued.
Grt this wonderful book, you won't want to put it down!
Great story about hope and discovery in many aspects. Always love Irene Hannon books and look forward to enjoying more.
Exactly as expected as soon as girl meets boy.
Slow, boring, predictable. Wish I hadn't wasted one of my credits.
"uplifting, special, heart warming and amazing."
That is a 100 percent yes, because the story was so heart warming uplifting and so brilliant. I found it amazing how one little girls letter could change so many lives and for the better.
I do not have a favourite as I think she read the whole book very well.
Yes, I could not put it down as soon as i got hooked in to it.
An amazing and heart warming story which I would highly recommend. This is the second book i've read by this author and it won't be my last.
