Overview
"If I wasn't such a good Christian, You'd be living in an orphanage, missy," Grandma told Michelle more times than she could count. Abandoned by her parents, she and her little sister, Nicole, are reminded every day that their livelihood depends on an old woman who never wanted them in the first place. Nearly twenty years later, Michelle Hurley doesn't need anyone. She has finally accepted the fact that she isn't worthy of the love she so desperately needed as a child. Now the only person she relies on is herself. She lives alone on the family farm, drives a sports car, contributes mightily to her stock portfolio, and devotes herself to her job and her dog. She's perfectly content in the niche she's carved out for herself. All that changes the morning her sister abandons her two young children under Michelle's lilac bushes. Michelle is stunned by Nicole's cruel and selfish act. How could she do such a terrible thing to her? She always put Nicole first, and this is how she repays her? Michelle wants her life back. She doesn't want to become someone's mommy. She doesn't have the time or inclination to deal with daycare and tummy aches and separation anxiety. And she doesn't want to fall in love again with someone who will only end up hurting her.

Another great read from Teresa Slack  Mar 16, 2007
If you want a good book, be sure to pick this one up. All of Teresa's books have been very good.
 
Realistic characters & good plot  Sep 7, 2006
What would you do if you found your sister's two preschool-aged children abandoned under your lilac bushes early one morning? This is the dilemma faced by Michelle Hurley, registered nurse and very independent single woman. With her flighty sister Nicole nowhere in sight, Michelle at first begrudges every dollar spent on the kids and every minute spent trying to make up for Nicole's unbelievable selfishness. But then her niece and nephew start to blossom under her care, and Michelle's tightly closed heart begins to open just a bit as well. As the months pass, everyone keeps asking: is Nicole ever coming back? If she does, what will Michelle do with these little lives that are depending on her to make the right decision?
In this work of Christian fiction, Ms. Slack has succeeded in creating a very realistic main character who grows and changes during the course of the narrative. The author's other books include Streams of Mercy, Redemption's Song (both in the Jenna`s Creek series), and her brand new offering, The Ultimate Guide to Darcy Carter (due out September 15, 2006).
 
A fitting title for a wonderful book.  Sep 28, 2005
I enjoyed this novel so much. I can't remember the last time I actually teared up when reading a book. Ms. Slack has such a gift for making you feel like you are a part of the story. The characters in this book were so real and I found myself being drawn into the emotional ups and downs of a young womans life. Thanks for a wonderful book that I could not put down and didn't want too!!!
