My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Meri Hollis's life seems perfect she has a loving supporting family, a boyfriend, a job she loves, and friends but on her 30th birthday her family will tell her the truth about her past that will send her looking for answers. I personally think that Meri handled the news fairly well I don't think that I would be as composed about it as she was to find out my "family" is not technically my "family".
Alden, her Gran's neighbor, though a teenager when Meri was born was like a big brother to her until her and her family moved away when she was in her teens but even then he kept a close eye on her from afar. But why? The intensity of his devotion seems like a bit much, at least to me, Meri of course does not question it because he has always just been there but when a promise made long ago is revealed to her Meri starts to look at Alden a bit different. So is her entire relationship with Alden just an obligation that he feels he needs to keep filling because of a promise he made 30 years ago?
But is it more than that? For both Alden and Meri.
A heart-warming story of family and a love that has always been there! This was one of the better chick-lit books that I have read this year.
Thanks for stopping in,
