Publisher's Summary

At thirty-nine, Leona Accorsi is broke, single, back in school, and living in her sister Carly's basement. She's perfectly content being quirky Auntie Lee to Carly's four children. That is, until Leona's doctor tells her that if she wants to have a child, she'd better do it now.
Leona does want a baby. She always has, but the circumstances have never been right. Now she has a huge decision to make: face motherhood on her own or risk missing out on its rewards.
Unfortunately, she's let her romantic life go stagnant. She barely even knows any single men. She has just a few prospects: a Vietnam vet and partial amputee, his intimidating son, the sweet but troubled man who tutors her niece, and a fellow nursing student she's never actually met.
As Leona discovers more about each one, she realizes any of them could be the right man for the job. The more important question is, has she become the right woman?

Tender, Real, Delightful

I had just finished a great book, but it was one that left me feeling spent. It'd wrung me out. I wanted a lighter read but didn't want fluff. So, I found this book and it was exactly what I needed.

It's a heartwarming tale, but not saccharin sweet. The characters are dealing with difficult things, but they deal with them in the way we'd all hope to, with a gentle hold. They embrace them, but are not devastated by them.

I love the relationships between Leona and her family, but there was something special and genuine in her relationships with her home health patients. I've seen it in real life and it was beautiful to "see it on the page".

Entertaining story.

I really enjoyed most all of this book except for all of the crude language used by the women. In the real world, I don't know many Mothers, who care about their families who use this kind of language. I was also shocked that a 13 year old would be allowed to be in the room while her Aunt was inseminated! This could have been a very sweet story, filled with lots of wisdom about love and life but all the other stuff ruined it for me.
