A riveting story of secret sin and the healing power of forgiveness

Airline pilot Connor Evans and his wife, Michele, seem to be the perfect couple living what looks like a perfect life. Then a plane goes down in the Pacific Ocean. One of the casualties is Kiahna Siefert, a flight attendant Connor knew well—too well. Kiahna's will is very clear: before her seven-year-old son, Max, can be turned over to the state, he must spend the summer with the father he's never met, the father who doesn't know he exists: Connor Evans.

Now will the presence of one lonely child and the truth he represents destroy Connor's family ? Or is it possible that healing and hope might come in the shape of a seven-year-old boy?

    " I love the author, but this is just one of her books which are just not very good. The ending becomes pretty clear withing the first few chapters and all the time in between is spent wandering how much more shalow and cheesy the characters will get. Really annoying. Read some of her other books though, they are much much better. "

    " I had a really hard time reading this book. It was about a single mom trying to raise her young son. She was a flight attendant who wanted to be a doctor. One night she trusted a man to sleep on her couch 8 years prior. They ended up sleeping together. The man had told her that he lived in California and his wife in Florida. The 23 year old girl though that they were separated. After their night together the man went back to his family, a wife and two daugthers. He never spoke about the affair, or really the one night stand. Eight years later the woman had given up her dreams of being a doctor and was still working as a flight attendant. Her plane crashed. Her son went to stay with a family friend until they could figure out what to do. Never had the girl mentioned the boys father, until they found her will. The mother asked that the son spend two weeks his father and if the father did not want him that he send him back and he go up for adoption. The man had to tell his current wife about the affair and try to welcome his son. The current wife had alot of hurt, anger and resentment with the boy coming. It was a difficult situation all around. In the end it turned out great and the wife got over the affair and learned to look at the boy as one that lost his mother and not blame him for the mistakes her husband made. With God's grace she was able to forgive him and make a second chance for the little boy. He now had a real father, a new mom and two sisters. He even got to keep dog. "
