Being a good mother is never simple: each day brings new choices and challenges. For Diane Robbins, being a devoted single mother has resulted in her greatest joy and darkest sorrow. Weeks before her daughter was born, she and her husband, Tim McIntosh, received the news that every parent fears. Tim had not reckoned on their child being anything less than perfect, and abruptly fled to a solitary existence on the sea. Diane was left with a newborn - almost alone. It was Tim's brother, Alan, the town pediatrician, who stood by Diane and her exceptional daughter. Throughout years of waiting, watching, and caring, Alan hid his love for his brother's wife. But one of the many hard choices Diane has made is to close her heart toward any man - especially one named McIntosh. It will take a very special twelve-year-old to remind them all that love comes in many forms, and can be received with as much grace as it is given.

"A well-produced abridgment recounts an affair between Diane Robbins and two brothers, one of whom left Diane at the thought of becoming a father to a less than perfect daughter and the other a pediatrician who took care of that daughter. Susie Breck narrates with an intense energy that begs the listener to understand the story. What she does is lend her believing attitude to an ordinary novel. She raises the characters from their cardboard environment, turning them into real people and embracing them with the sympathy and warmth that are lacking in the story itself. J.P.
