Publisher's Summary

Meeting Porter may be the best thing that ever happened to Winona Fairchild, besides the births of her two beautiful children. But as much as Porter wants to get married, Winona has good reason not to get too close to anyone, no matter how right it may seem.

Despite a threat from the past that comes back to haunt him, Porter is willing to stand his ground. But when Winona's long-time secret is revealed to her kids, someone will have to pay. And Winona will learn how much the truth can hurt, and how much it can heal.

Good

I really liked this book and would recommend this book. I wish this book was a movie or TV show. At times it was kind of slow but then it will pick up again. It touched on real life situations like HIV , wanting to start a family fibroids in the uterus, teen pregnancy, overdeveloped teenagers and realizing your dreams. I didn't however like the ending I wish it would have told more on how her daughter reacted to her having HIV since the daughter had a negative view on it how her father and mother were affected by her saying that he told her son that she had HIV and then told his secret of having outside children. if the outside children finally met all of the other children and got along or not. The cure the doctor told her he had to cure her HIV or was that just his pick up line. I know there is a system cell procedure that happened to an individual that had cancer and had HIV and now they have no trace of HIV do to the stem cell procedure they had effectively curing them. It was on the local news when I was listening to this book and thought that was interesting and that maybe the author was taking that route with the storyline.

good story

I enjoyed the story line of this book, but at times the narrator sounded like she had a mouthful of saliva or too much lip gloss on. I cringed everytime I heard it.

Okay

The story and performance were great. The production was terrible. There was no pause betten chapters and often one voice overlaped the voice of the next chapter.
