Publisher's Summary

From best-selling author Karen McQuestion comes a moving novel about broken hearts…and what it takes to put them back together again.

At nine years of age, Logan Weber knows the routine. Keep quiet, make the food last, and don’t ever cause trouble. He’ll do what it takes to evade the rages of his troubled, violent father. Even though he’s only a child, Logan already knows too much - has seen too much.

So when the opportunity presents itself, Logan runs. He has no idea where his journey will lead, or that the grandmother he’s been told is dead is desperately searching for him.

Alone with no home of his own, Logan looks for a safe place to hide. Relying on his instincts and the kindness of strangers, the boy manages to touch the lives of everyone he meets. But his innocent heart cannot survive in the adult world without the most basic human need of all: love.

A Grandmother's Quest

I absolutely loved this story. The characters believable and narration was stupendous! At first glance this appeared to be a very straight forward story, but it was crafted so the reader became aware of all the back stories of the supporting characters. The character's interactions with the child in the story adds depth and brings an entirely different dimension to the story. Karen Mcquestion always brings her best and most creative self to everything she writes. Another must-read@

Oh my!

I loved this story. I did work my way through a box of Kleenex but they were happy tears. I usually stick to gruesome mysteries etc. but took a chance on this one. I totally “binge listened” and was surprised at myself. But as I stated previously, I loved the story. Also, I wonder if the author was at one time a Speech Therapist, I was and was amazed at the accuracy with which she described the room etc. Great job!!!!

Lovely little feel good tale :)

Sometimes I just want a story where good things happen to good people and the bad guys get what they deserve. This is that kind of story - happy ending to a story of a grandmother searching for her grandson and multiple characters exploring the meaning of family. It’s not particularly complex or deep - just a sweet story of family love - like curling up with a teddy bear and a warm blanket :)

Heart-warming Story

Heart-warming story of the love and forever bond between a Grandmother and her grandchild. Beautiful story of the human spirit and how much one caring teacher can touch a child's life.

Story was okay

Story was ok buy I thought it lacked depth. There was something about the narration that didn't engage me. Well read but I felt like the narrator was just reading me a book the way I would in my mind.
