I have just been lucky enough to be given both book 1 and book 2 of this very touching read by the author Pamela E. Foreman.
David and Annette Anderson have been married for two years, working hard to merge their two families. During their short marriage, one son joined the military and two children entered college, leaving four teenagers at home. Everyone seemed happy with this new blended family.
Then it happened. An unfortunate accident and all the hopes and dreams for one child faded quickly. A second child chooses the wrong path in life while another child reveals his feelings for two women. And then the ultimate shock which will affect all nine family members. HERE
