The Single Dad:
Ex-military man Derrick Richmond. Solitary and satisfied...until little Timmy was dropped into his lap and Derrick had to learn to be somebody's daddy.
The Single Woman:
Schoolteacher Anna Maxwell. Fate might have denied her a family of her own, but Anna still had plenty of love to give, if only someone would notice.
Anna would teach Derrick all he needed to know about kids. Father and son would give Anna some precious memories. Then the schoolteacher and the single dad would go their separate ways. Unless one little boy figured out a way to make Miss Maxwell become his mom!
Derrick Richmond has uprooted his life, resigned his naval commission, and started his own accounting business so that he can provide a stable home life for his godson, Timmy. He's raising his godson now because, ten months ago, Timmy's father, his cousin James, also a Navy officer, died in a training accident.
Timmy has never really had a stable home life, and Derrick has never before James's death been responsible for a child. He knows he has a lot to learn, and a lot to work through with Timmy.
But when Anna Maxwell, Timmy's kindergarten teacher, says Timmy is having behavior problems and needs "extra help," Derrick has visions of the labeling of the "special ed" kids when he was in school, and is determined not to listen to her on the subject.
But he very much does want to do right by Timmy, and knows he needs help.
Meanwhile, Anna Maxwell loves kids, but has her own little secret on the subject, one which she thinks is an insurmountable obstacle to true love.
It's a nice story, about novella length I think, and Anna and Derrick are both likable. This is a nice little read, or listen. Recommended.
