USA TODAY bestselling author Sarah Morgan returns with a life-affirming exploration of love, loss, and how families come in all shapes and sizes…
New York florist Flora Donovan is living the dream, but her bubbly optimism hides a secret. She’s lonely. Orphaned as a child, she’s never felt like she’s belonged anywhere…until she meets Jack Parker. He’s the first man to ever really see her, and it’s life changing.
Teenager Izzy Parker is holding it together by her fingertips. Since her mother passed away a year ago, looking after her dad and little sister is the only thing that makes Izzy feel safe. Discovering her father has a new girlfriend is her worst nightmare—she is not in the market for a replacement mom. Then her father invites Flora on their summer vacation…
Flora’s heart aches for Izzy, but she badly wants her relationship with Jack to work. As the summer unfolds, Flora must push her own boundaries to discover parts of herself she never knew existed—and to find the family she’s always wanted.
Thank you HQN Books for gifting me a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.
I rate this book a 4 out of 5 Stars.
I loved this book, I loved the realness in it. It felt so incredible relatable to me. I ached for both Flora and Izzy. I wanted them to realize what they both were seeking, they could find in each other. This book was written beautifully, it flowed, it kept me engrossed, and I did not want to put it down. It made me feel things, it made me hurt, it made me smile, it made tears come to my eyes. It was a beautiful story about love of all kinds.
