Publishers Description
David and Abby Treasure seem to have everything together: a perfect marriage, a perfect son, and a perfect life. But one simple phone call turns their world upside down. Years ago, David had an affair outside of his marriage, and though he never knew it, the affair produced a daughter. Now his former lover calls with heartbreaking news: his daughter is dying of leukemia. Her only hope for survival is a bone marrow transplant-from David or his son.
Can David and Abby set aside their betrayal and anger to save a little girl's life? If they can make it through, they may find that their love for one another and their faith in God can be redeemed . . . and grow stronger than ever before.

Disappointing  Jan 2, 2010
The author is very sloppy with details, dates, vehicles, events are not consistent - she needs an editor!
The husband David claims to be a Christian and wants to do what the Lord wants, but he's sneaking around talking to his ex-mistress, he never tells the full truth to his wife, he never apologizes when first revealing his adultery or at the end.
This is supposed to be a Christian family but David never prayed once, he didn't try to bring healing to his wife for the pain he caused, he never admitted he was wrong and was prideful and he never confessed to God or his wife his adultery.
This story teaches that women must make the first move, take all the steps to reconcilliation and make all the sacrifices in an relationship - while allowing men to be jerks.
The author obviously knows nothing about marriage problems and this book that could have taught the true meaning of healing a marriage - instead disappoints...
Life's Little Upheavals Happen Any Day, Every Day.  Jul 17, 2006
On the surface, Abby and David appeared to have the perfect marriage and lifestyle. One day, a desperate plea on the phone's answering machine changed all that. David refused to "remember" and tried to erase the message as if he'd never heard the name Susan and the voice from the past. After all, that was long ago and far away.

And yet, the desperation which had caused Susan to follow him to Jackson Hole (where things can be hidden) was real and important. Men tend to forget the past and pretend such things didn't happen to them. If you don't know the consequences had happened from a fleeting affair, then the responsibility lies elsewhere, unless a court decides differently. It happens in all families at one time or another, more often then people tell. It's what we used to hear being called skeletons in the closet.

But, when it's a life-and-death health problem, no decent man could turn his back on what he helped to produce. You can't be responsible for anybody else's actions. You are responsible for yourself alone. Harm and injury closed in around her like water closing in over her head. Never say yes until you are sure who you're dealing with. No one knows when the morning will come when the phone rings and a voice from t he past asks for your help.

And so, Abby has to face up to the truth of the matter and beat the burden of David's problem. It didn't involve her but did her son. Being a religious woman who counseled battered women professionally at a shelter, she questions God, "Why me?" Every woman at some time in her life (unless she dies at an early age) must decide the path to take, whether to flee or stay in an uncomfortable situation. It all revolves around love, true love.
If infidelity is okay with you, this is your book!  Nov 9, 2005
David and Abby Treasure (niiiiiice fake last name), along with their son Braden, are the perfect Christian family. Until, that is, David's affair from 9 years ago comes back to haunt them. Turns out his mistress gave birth to his child and never told him. Oops. And of course, now the illegitimate daughter is dying of cancer and needs a bone marrow transplant, and he has to tell his wife and bring all sorts of loverly turmoil into his family. Yada yada yada, we've all heard this story a zillion times before.

I was pretty irritated by this book. Abby gets angry at David, rightly so, and he acts like a creep toward her. He doesn't get that because he went out acting like a manwhore, he's to blame. But what grossed me out was when Abby tells him that the affair was partly HER fault, that she pushed him away, even though he cheated on her while she was not only pregnant, but just after giving birth to their son. Nice guy there. She forgives him (this is a Christian novel, and the author seems set on the fact that divorce is never an option, even if your significant other goes around acting like a workaholic prostitute), and of course, everyone lives happily ever after.

I don't agree. I think that she was making faith out to be the only remedy for a marriage that was in desperate need of a lot of therapy (faith never hurts, of course, but God helps those who help themselves). I felt almost as though the author looked down on anyone who would dare divorce over something so little as infidelity. This made me feel small. Didn't care for that.
Inspiring, Moving and A Real Page Turner!  Oct 9, 2004
Imagine you have just celebrated your twelfth wedding anniversary. Life is wonderfully beautiful -- until one day, out of the blue -- the past comes back to haunt you in the worst way possible. This happens to David and Abby Treasure.

David has an announcement for Abby, his wife of 12 years. The results of his announcement will bring to light heartache and pain that ordinarily tear even the strongest married couple apart. Abby Treasure finds out her husband had an affair nine years ago while she was pregnant with their son. The woman David had an affair with calls him requesting a meeting. At this meeting, David finds out he has a little girl that he never knew about. Even more devastating, the little girl has leukemia and is in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant. David and his son are prime candidates as donors.

With extraordinary writing, Deborah Bedford delivers a novel that will move the reader emotionally and spiritually. Forgiveness and redemption are powerfully displayed as Abby comes to grips with David's betrayal and the "other" woman, whose child is dying. While this book is fictional, the themes that run througout the novel can surely encourage a real-life married couple going through heartaches in their own marriage.

Not so good . . .  Jan 30, 2004
This book was a total bore. What a disappointment. The author did not create any buy-in for the reader to connect with the characters, and the story was pretty predictable. Lots of geographic references. Average to poor writing ability.
