Publisher's Summary

Widowed by war, Maura O'Connor has raised her son alone under the weight of poverty in the unforgiving slums of New York City. That harsh and difficult life has taken a toll on them both. Desperate to save her son from the misery around them, she moves them both to the tiny Western town of Hope Springs, where her late husband's family lives, hoping the decade of silence between them does not mean she and Aidan will be rejected outright. Her son needs family, and she would endure anything to see him happy.  

Ryan Callaghan has worked the land belonging to the late Granny Claire for years, dreaming of one day claiming it as his own. Living in his brother's home affords him no freedom, no stability, no joy. The arrangement is even harder on his mother, whose health is quickly deteriorating. A risky investment in the land has finally begun to pay off, and he is at last in a position to secure a better future for them both. When use of the home is, without warning, offered to a newly arrived widow and her son, that future is entirely uncertain.  

Both Maura and Ryan desperately need the Claire farm, for their own futures as well as those of the loved ones who depend on them. Neither can remain in Hope Springs without the house and land, but only one can claim it in the end.

good

This book kept me entertained as i worked around the house or exercised or drove...I enjoyed hearing it, but it wasn't like I was dying to turn it back on to find out what happened next. The narrator was very good and I enjoyed revisiting characters from Sarah's other books.

Long but endearing

This book has 46 chapters. I enjoyed the book immensely but I read the first three books in this series. And, yes, it definitely takes 12 hours and 31 minutes to get through. I was sorry to have it end as I wanted it to continue and tell me what was going to happen with Mora and Ryan and Mora's son Aidan. I got totally wrapped up in this book.
