New York Times Best-Selling Series
A boy learns about love and what it means to become a man of integrity.
Adam Dearborn has just been adopted into the Grayson family when he comes upon two boys huddled inside his sister’s warm greenhouse. Adam had hoped to have time alone with his sweetheart, Rebecca, but December snow is falling hard and the poorly clothed, hungry boys need his help. Adam takes them home never expecting the arrangement could become permanent. Being an only son is not a position Adam wants to give up, not does he want to share Rebecca’s affection with the older boy. But being a Grayson man means doing what’s right no matter the cost. While struggling to protect his place as an only son, will Adam lose what he wants most—to become a man of honor and integrity like his father and uncles?

Finding Hope through letting go
Being able to listen to the flow of the story and remembering characters from the previous books
That no matter what your age letting go of your past and being able to see that others have had as rough a life if not worse than you have.
There were several scenes that I enjoyed but the end where friendship shines through the hurtful words was my favorite.
Riding a fine line between envy and hope
Very enjoyable story of young love and belonging!!! Being able to recognize that your feelings based on your past and moving forward a step at a time. Owning up to giving and receiving forgiveness. Honor is earned not just from your name but through your actions.
Sweet, Hopeful Story
Narration - Julia Motyka - Really Good
So this is the Prequel to Adam and Rebecca's story. Adam finds a boy about his age (Leo) and his toddler brother in the greenhouse and ends up telling his parents and they bring them home to get them warmed up and fed. They are runaways from the orphanage and Duke lets them know they are free to stay.
Adam spends most of the book in a love/hate relationship with Leo. He doesn't want to like him, but only because he's jealous of the relationship that is developing between Leo and Duke.
The book is a lot about love, hope, caring for your neighbor, giving and community along with the plot regarding Adam's struggles to be a good man like his father and uncles. He sort of fails miserably at that in a weak moment and then spends the rest of the book trying to make up for that. If you liked the previous books in the series, you'll like this one as well. It's just another sweet book.
That is all!
