Claire Summers is a busy single mom. She's got a house that needs a lot of TLC and a daughter with a heart of gold. When Haley wants to do something nice for their neighbor, art professor Maureen Chandler, and writes a letter to the CEO of a well known construction company, she has no idea that the outcome of her request will touch so many lives. Keith Watson is the executive assistant for a well known CEO. He's been tasked with sorting through the requests that come across his desk to determine which one or ones the company should donate to. Haley's letter throws him for a loop. She's not asking for money, but instead help in finding her neighbor's long ago son that was given up for adoption. At his boss's request, Keith reluctantly begins digging in the circumstances surrounding the birth and before he knows it, he's finding that one little girl's letter will change his life and so many others.
While this isn't the typical Irene Hannon book I've grown accustomed to with her romantic suspense, I did enjoy this one immensely. It's very touching and at times, heart wrenching.
Keith's journey to discover answers is one that tore at my heart. I loved that he had to come to grip with his past in order to move on with his future.
The one character that I adored in every aspect was Haley. The author did a great job of capturing both her innocence and her zest for life.
I can't wait to read the next book that Irene Hannon has to offer in the contemporary fiction genre.
I received this book for free from Revell Books for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
