A terrible accident has left little Keefer orphaned but not
unwanted. Devastated by his beloved sister's tragic death,
twenty-four-year-old bachelor Gordon McKenna assumes that he
will be entrusted with raising his niece, whom he has grown
extremely close to over the few precious months of Keefer's
life. But the child's paternal grandparents have different
ideas—and a fierce legal battle ensues that will test the
capacity and limitations of family love again and again . .
. and no one will emerge from it unscathed or unchanged.
Jacquelyn Mitchard, whose powerful, emotionally rich novels
have won resounding critical acclaim and a wide,
enthusiastic audience worldwide, brings us a soaring,
heartbreaking, and unforgettable tale of love and the bonds
that unite us all.
