What a a a greart story. Easy read as well.
A divorced couple with a lot of bitter feelings share custody of there son. When he is taken gravely ill and has some long lasting ill effects (as to not give the story away) this couple has to work together to help there son. It is a story of love, trust, and relying on God to help get you through.
Can't wait to get another Deboroah Bedford book.
Very predictable story of divorced parents who have to learn to get along when their child gets sick.
