As if that wasn't enough, Liam is now caring for the little boy his late wife gave birth to after having an affair with Bernie's uncle, another sleezeball politician. Liam is coming to love the boy and while he's his official guardian, he fears that the biological father may take the boy away--if only to prevent his presence from becoming known to his continuents.
But the real meat of this story is the examination of relationships: specifically, the differences between foster care, adoption, and biological linkages. Liam was a foster kid and he knows and felt the difference between being a thrown-away kid and one who might have been adopted. Bernie thinks she was born into that wealth that has always surrounded her--until she discovers that she was, in fact, torn from her birth mother and adopted by that couple she has always thought were her parents.
Both Liam and Bernie want to protect little Ike from what Liam endured. But how can Bernadette, who was the reason Ike's now threatened, protect him and those unexpected feelings that she now has for Liam, and he for her?
This book kept me up all night with both the questions it raised, the answers it ultimately provided and the sensitivity with which it dealt with things so very close to the current political situation many of us are now watching unfold. A great story.
There were some great lines in this read:
"He was man enough to love a woman with his whole heart, but he was also man enough to let her go, and to deal with the pain on his own."
"...life doesn't give you many chances to follow your heart, and the rest of your life is an awfully long time to go without the man you love."
I received an ARC in exchange for a honest review
A actual superb read! I am not a fan of contemporary however, after this read, I need to write this author on my list of keep track of! I had only one tiny gripe....... The fiance and his comeuppance! Other than that.... A super engaging read. Complex at times, layers that you cannot imagine and surprises that you can not believe! Passionate and compassionate, and truly gripping! I was given this book in return for an honest review. Anna Swedenmom
