It can take a long time to build up a life, and only moments to destroy it. Gary and Molly met in the way couples do: after a long haul of being single, quickly becoming soulmates and rejoicing in that fact. Beautiful, red-haired Molly ignites a fire in Gary and he eases the pain she feels about her past. Starting a family is something they both want badly to do, and with great joy Molly finds herself pregnant.

When she leaves for the hospital that things start to go seriously wrong. Just a few weeks later Gary is alone with a newborn and a mountain of medical bills he has no means to pay for. Desperate for help, he calls on Molly's long estranged sister, Suzanne.

From Sue Miller to Elizabeth Berg, bestselling authors have tackled the challenges of love and marriage. Caroline Leavitt claims the turf in her own exciting way, twisting and turning a medical nightmare into an opportunity for redemption and hope.

I could have finished this book weeks ago. But I found myself rationing it, to make it last longer. I've had 20 pages left for over a week. There's something about Caroline Leavitt's writing that just sucks you in, makes you feel like you know these characters. Read full review

I was not as excited with the ending. Seems like the author rushed to finish the book and left a few things "lingering" around unfinished. Sad story though Read full review
