It’s about family conflicts, divorce drama, addictions as well as strong emotions of hope and love.

This book is the sequel of Summer of Two Wishes. You would want to read it first, so you can understand why the main character Wyatt is where he is, you do not need it to immerse yourself in the plot of this book.
Holly was the sister that was always left in the  wake of Hanna which was the perfect student, daughter, wife and mother and felt that she will never be good enough. One day Holly’s world is turn upside down, when her sister disappears leaving her son in her care. Different events bring Holly to the family home, which her mother left to her when she died, hoping  to be able to cope with her new life.

It is not an easy book to put down until you finish reading it.

Summary: (from goodreads) Holly Fisher opens her door one day and finds her estranged sister Hannah standing there with a glassy look and her nine-month old baby on her hip. Before Holly knows what is happening, Hannah has left her baby with Holly and disappeared. Three months later, fresh out of rehab for addiction to painkillers, Hannah shows up sober, contrite, and wanting her son back. But Holly is in love with the baby and not willing to give him up to the mother who abandoned him.
Into the middle of this extraordinary conflict between two sisters walks a lonesome cowboy, Wyatt Clark (Summer of Two Wishes) who knows a thing or two about childcare and fractured families. He’s had his own troubles and has stayed away from women the last couple of years, but he can’t resist Holly and the baby. But when Holly is delivered a devastating blow and returns the baby to his mother, Holly is too distraught to continue her relationship with Wyatt. It will take an extraordinary turn from Hannah to bring Holly and Wyatt together so that they both may find the happiness that has eluded them.
