From award-winning author Diane Chamberlain comes a story about a mother’s love and how far she’s willing to go to protect her children.
Fifteen-year-old Andy Lockwood is special. Others notice the way he
blurts out anything that comes into his mind, how he cannot foresee
consequences, and that he’s more child than teenager. But his mother sees a
boy with a heart as open and wide as the ocean.
Laurel Lockwood lost her son once through neglect. She’s spent the rest
of her life determined to make up for her mistakes, and she has
succeeded in becoming a committed, protective parent—maybe even
overprotective. Still, she loosens her grip just enough to let Andy
attend a local church social—a decision that terrifies her when the
church is consumed by fire. But Andy survives … and remarkably,
saves other children from the flames. Laurel watches as Andy basks in
the role of unlikely hero and the world finally sees her Andy, the sweet
boy she knows as well as her own heart.
But when the suspicion
of arson is cast upon Andy, Laurel must ask herself how well she really
knows her son .. and how far she’ll go to keep her promise to protect
him forever. Download and start listening now!
