Lucy moves her teenage boys to a small town to put the pieces back together after a divorce and the older boy finding himself in trouble. However, this story isn't just about Lucy getting her life in order. Drew Tolman, former baseball player, is also reaching out the teenage daughter he never acknowledged. Then there's his ex-girlfried, Jacquie, who has to learn to live without a man and get to know herself. There are really three story-lines in this book that intertwine, but each is a strong part of the story. This story delves into real-life issues like divorce and alchoholism and how it can affect those close by. Although I didn't find the book to be a downer, it didn't have as much humor as I prefer--it was just reality. It was well-written and what some might call an "easy read".

I found this book to be a good read. It has several characters to follow and not to much adult content.

Ann's best yet!!!!! Realistically examines the healing process post-divorce and post-regret, as well as raising teenage sons. A rare reread for me!

I found the hero just a little shallow until very close to the end of the book but overall I really enjoyed this book.

This was a cute story that became really good as the story went along and the events toward the end of the book though expected, were nonetheless, quite moving.
