Mark Dennison is raising his daughter Sophie on his own since his wife Jesse was killed in a car accident 10 years ago.. That in itself is a tough job but now he has to deal with Sophie having a serious disease and needs a bone marrow transplant, except they can find no matches. His family want him to try to get in touch with the only person they haven't tested, his dead wife's sister Catherine. Sounds easy except Mark hold her responsible for killing his wife as she was driving the car the day ...more

A really fantastic little read about secrets being exposed and new relationships being formed in the mist of tragedy. I really liked the emotion, it was in depth and raw at times but also sweet and slow building.

The relationship between father and daughter is what made this read for me, it was so touching and really spoke to my heart.

I recommend this read for anyone that loves a romance read with real in depth emotion, budding romance and a great message of nothing is ever as it seems !
5/5 star

I loved the emotions and the relationship in this story. The father/daughter relationship was depicted very realistically. And the aunt and niece budding friendship was a pleasure to read. I loved this story and recommend to all readers. It was very warm and tender romance.

A Story of Loss and Heartache with a Beautiful Conclusion

Mark Dennison was on a mission to save the life of his beloved daughter (who deserved a good bit of discipline if you ask me.) If she didn't receive a transplant she was not going to make it. Mark knew just who he needed to go to for help. Catherine, the twin sister of his dead wife, whom he blamed for his wife's death and banished from his and his niece's lives, not allowing her to see her own niece in ten years. She was his best chance a

Another winner by Helen! Catherine and Mark are great characters with a tragic connection - and a joyous one in Sophie. I really enjoyed watching them work through all the issues. A great read!
