What is this book about?
In the midst of WWII, Jane Linder pours all her energy and dreams for a family into her career at the Toronto Children’s Aid Society. As acting directress, Jane hopes for a permanent appointment so she can continue making a difference in the lives of troubled children. But if anyone were to find out she is divorced, everything would change.
Garrett Wilder has been hired to overhaul operations at the Children’s Aid Society. He hopes to impress the board members with his findings and earn the vacant director’s position. A war injury ended his dream of taking over his parents’ farm, but with the security of the director’s job, he’d be able to contribute financially and help save the family business.
Despite their competing interests, feelings begin to blossom between them. But then Jane’s ex-husband returns from overseas with an unexpected proposition that could fulfill her deepest desires. Suddenly at a crossroads, can Jane discern the path to true happiness?
I was drawn into this story right away. Jane and Garrett were in direct competition for the director’s position but it was hard to root for one over the other considering their plans and intentions were each great for the children. Then, to complicate things, they began to develop feelings beyond friendship for each other.
There was such nice romantic tension between them and I really enjoyed how their love for family and friends added a nice depth to the story.
Both Jane and Garrett had their wounds but tried to push past them to help others achieve happiness. But in the end, through all the twists and emotional turns, they managed to find it for themselves.
What I enjoyed most about this book:
So many things. I loved that in moments when problems could have been dramatized and blown out of proportion, the characters acted like real people would.
What I didn’t like about this book:
Would I recommend this book to others? Yes. So many good characters, emotional twists and turns, and wonderful romance. This is the second book in the series and it can be read as a standalone.
Note: I received this book complimentary as a member of the author’s launch team. I was not required to give a positive review. All of the opinions I have expressed here are honest and my own.
