Publisher's Summary

Caring for a new foster child while running a thriving day care should keep Terri Hayes more than occupied, but her heart longs for something more. She hungers for a family of her own, and at 29, she feels time ticking away. When a busted pipe floods her home, Steve Evans offers her the family's basement apartment as a temporary solution.
Steve is widower, a father of two teenaged girls, and a successful writer. He is also the object of Terri's secret affections. At least he was until a casual comment from him leads her to believe that he has all the family he'll ever want.
Iris and Samantha Evans have set their sights on Terri as the perfect stepmother. Their matchmaking plans include equal parts of prayer and deception. Will their scheming result in the wedding of their dreams, or will the harsh confrontation between Steve and the parents of Terri's foster child be an obstacle they can't overcome?

What disappointed you about Terri?

I tried to get engaged to the characters, but she introduced so many at once it was hard to keep them straight. It was almost like 2 stories going on at once without a clear indication of when you were in the other story. I just couldn't complete it, it was too mundane.

Would you ever listen to anything by Sharon Srock again?

Probably not.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Laura Jennings?

The narrator was not the problem.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

An inside look at an aging woman desiring children and the workings of the foster child system.

So good!!

Another great book from Sharon Srock! She has quickly become one of my favourite authors! As an older, single woman, I can identify with Terri's struggles to follow God's will for her life, when what she's always wanted seems to be In a different direction. God's way is rarely easy, but it's always the best way!
