How do you tell a man there is something wrong with his child?
He wasn't looking to love again. But what he got was a woman who shook his lonely bitter world upside down, and touched him in a way no other woman could.
Emily Nelson, a courageous young mother, ends a loveless, bitter marriage and strikes out on her own. She answers an ad for a cook and live-in caregiver to a three-year-old boy on a local ranch. Ranch owner Brad Friessen hires and moves in Emily and her daughter. But Emily soon discovers something's seriously wrong with the boy, and the reclusive, difficult man who hired her can't see the behavior and how delayed his son is. So Emily researches until she stumbles across what she suspects are the soft signs of autism. Now she must tell him, give him hope, and help him come to terms with this neurological disorder - to take the necessary steps to get his child the help he needs.
As their lives become intertwined, their attraction is unavoidable - a connection sparks between them. But just as they're getting close, Brad's estranged wife, Crystal, returns after abandoning the family two years earlier. Among the shock and confusion is one disturbing question Brad can't shake: How does Crystal know so much of his personal business, the inner working of the ranch, and Emily's relationship with his son?
Crystal must've had a plan, as she somehow gains the upper hand, driving a wedge in the emotional bond forged between Brad, Emily, and the children. The primary focus for care and therapy of three-year-old Trevor is diverted. The lengths to which Crystal will go, the lies, the greed, just to keep what's hers, are nothing short of cold and calculating. Emily's forced out of the house. Brad fights to save his boy, to protect what's his, and struggles over his greatest sacrifice - Emily - and the haunting question: Has he lost her forever?

The love for the child
When told him what she thought was wrong with his son
Not with this narrator. I listened to chapter one. I can't get past the narration on this book, it's gone. Good thing I didn't spend a lot of money on it. I gave the story line a 3 only because the story itself did not turn me off at the point I quit.
I have not
She has the most annoying voice and no inflection that adds to the story.
this book had me laughing, crying and yes shouting with and at the characters. I loved it and the narrator. thanks for a great listen.
