At the age of six, a little girl named Harvey learns that her parents have died in a car accident. As she struggles to understand, a kindly social worker named Wanda introduces her to her only living relative: her uncle Jason, a disabled felon with a violent past and a criminal record. Despite his limitations - and his resistance - Wanda follows a hunch and cajoles Jason into becoming her legal guardian, convinced that each may be the other's last chance.

I didn't want the book to end even though I knew the ending. I wanted to stay in the story, near the characters. A wonderful story for all about the transformative power of falling in love with a child as a parent!
