Book Review: One Perfect Spring

Claire Summers is a determined, independent single mother who is doing her best to make lemonade out of the lemons life has handed her. Keith Watson is a results-oriented workaholic with no time for a social life. As the executive assistant to a local philanthropic businessman, he's used to fielding requests for donations. But when a letter from Claire's eleven-year-old daughter reaches his desk, everything changes. The girl isn't asking for money, but for help finding the long-lost son of an elderly neighbor.

As Keith digs reluctantly into this complicated assignment, he has no idea how intertwined his life and Claire's will become--nor how one little girl's kindhearted request will touch so many lives and reap so many blessings.

Through compelling characters and surprising plot twists, Irene Hannon offers readers this tenderhearted story of family connections that demonstrates how life is like lilacs--the biggest blooms often come only after the harshest winters.

Another lovely bedtime read that left me smiling at times and crying at others.  I would totally suggest that you have a tissue or two on hand  because, if you're anything like me, you're going to want them. While this is labeled as christian fiction, none of it is in your face. A few of the characters choose to go back to church and others pray for God's guidance. Since I really don't enjoy preachy books, this was perfect for my tastes. The story kept my attention and tugged at my heart strings. Like I said, a lovely bedtime read that kept me page turning over the course of more than one night.
