Return to Henry Adams, Kansas—an unforgettable place anyone would want to call home. . . .
Mayor Trent July and his wife, Lily, are enjoying life as newlyweds and embracing the challenges and joys that come with being adoptive parents to two wonderful boys. But fatherhood has inevitably forced Trent to think about his own birth mother.
Raised by his grandmother Tamar—and, in many ways, the good people of Henry Adams—Trent was blessed with a childhood full of love. But he can’t help wondering what happened to the scared teenage girl who gave birth to him. And questions that he’s never voiced are now begging to be answered: Who was she? Is she still alive? Why didn’t she want him?
Trent has always believed that no good comes from dwelling on the past, especially when you have a loving family, a strong community, and folks who depend on you. But when the past comes to Henry Adams, Trent has no choice but to face it—and the woman who left him behind. The truth will shake his very being and everything he thought he knew about life, love, and the bonds that hold families together . . . but can also tear them apart.
This is the first book I’ve read in this series but I didn’t feel as if I was missing anything. The story has a lot going on but it was easy to keep up.
The author’s writing style puts you in the story and you’ll fall in love with the town and it’s people. Everybody knows everybody’s business and they help each other like family does. They are loving and protective. There are more ups than downs in this book, but you will still have a lot of emotions while reading it.
This is a very good book. I wish I’d been reading the series from book one because it’s a really good, heartwarming story, but it can be read alone.
