A forgotten secret. A shocking discovery. A sacrifice of love that will bring Connor Evans to his knees.

A story of hope and redemption from #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury.

Airline pilot Connor Evans and his wife, Michele, seem to be the perfect couple living what looks like a perfect life. Then a plane goes down in the Pacific Ocean. One of the casualties is Kiahna Siefert, a flight attendant Connor knew well. Too well. Kiahna's will is very clear: before her seven-year-old son, Max, can be turned over to the state, he must spend the summer with the father he's never met, the father who doesn't know he exists: Connor Evans. Now will the presence of one lonely child and the truth he represents destroy Connor's family? Or is it possible for healing and hope to appear in the shape of a seven-year-old boy?

"[Kingsbury's] ability to accurately express life's sorrows and grief through her characters' inner dialogue rings true time and again." --Publishers Weekly on Every Now & Then

"Her emotionally charged novels often contain a strong romantic component and feature Christians at odds with their everyday world. This title is no exception. Recommend this one to readers who enjoy well-drawn characters and contemporary settings." --Library Journal on The Baxters Take Four

Some good things to think about in this story. As usual, by the time I got to the end of the story, Karen Kingsbury made me cry.

I have read a number of Karen Kingsbury's books. They are always thought provoking, while entertaining. A few of the earlier books were a bit long, but still worth the read.

I highly recommend Karen Kingsbury's work.
