Touching story about a young girl who finds herself pregnant who has a growing friendship with a woman who was assigned as her Big Sister. You can really see people change in this story....
I loved this book. The sacrifices and choices parents and others make in this book to benefit others really blessed my heart.
Fourteen year old Ann Small is pregnant and fears her father won't understand. They've grown apart since her mother's death, but now Ann has a Big Sister in wealthy Monica Albright, the proprietor of an antique toy museum in Colorado, who promises to help Ann through this difficult time. However, Monica did not count on falling for Ann's father, Richard. The book is fairly predictable, but the characters are warm and genuinely entertaining. The subject of teen pregnancy and the choices teen mothers face is handled well.
"I'm going to have a baby. Me. Ann. My dad is not gonna understand."
Fourteen-year-old Ann was right. Richard Small didn't understand how he and his daughter had grown so far apart, or why he was angry all the time. Missing his late wife more than ever, he arranged for a Big Sister to offer Ann the support he felt incapable of giving himself.
Enter Monica Albright. Adopted as a baby by a wealthy and caring family, Monica wanted to pass on the blessings granted to her. At thirty-two, she had a lot of love to give her new Little Sister.
What Monica didn't count on was falling in love with Ann's father. Or that the very person who had brought them together could untimely keep them apart. . .
