Another oldie but goodie from my Kindle library. I downloaded this book back in May of 2013 and feel like it’s another one I may have read before but not overly certain. I know Ma read it recently and really liked it. She liked it enough to actually write a small review! Proof, my friends, that peer pressure works. I really am hoping to get back to this one sometime in near future because the premise sounds engaging, will tug on the heart a bit, and I have a feeling I’ll like it.
Vince Glasser, an overworked federal agent and single father with a troubled past, already has enough on his plate when he is diagnosed with terminal cancer. He deals with it the only way he knows how–by fighting the illness with everything he has in him. Along his path toward a certain end, he mends relations with his estranged brother, reexamines his faith, prepares his son to live life without his parents, and finds room for romance with his longtime partner, Angela Hawkins.
Angela finds herself falling in love not only with Vince, but also with his young son, Charlie. In caring for both of them, she sees that despite decades-old mistakes that have left her in a pattern of empty relationships, she can still find redemption and have the family she’s always wanted. But a nagging feeling tells her that death isn’t the only thing that threatens to tear her new family from her grasp.
Amidst the struggles of a family with an expiration date, between the medicine and the meltdowns, Angela and Vince learn the true meaning of grace. See what other readers are talking about as two lost people find each other and God – just in time.
