On My Kindle - One Perfect Spring by Irene Hannon

Claire Summers works hard as a teacher, mom to a precocious 11-year-old daughter, and owner of a house that's falling apart. One benefit to living in her neighborhood is her new friend, Dr. Maureen Chandler. Her daughter's good deed for the cancer survivor impacts their lives beyond her wildest imagination.

Keith Watson's life revolves around work, work, and more work. His early years haunt him and keep him trapped in a prison of his own making. A compassionate boss and a thoughtful little girl change everything.

This new-to-me author created a sweet story with adoption and a spiritual theme intertwined. It's a great spring/summer read, filled with hope and transformation. While I prefer something with either historical or suspense elements, it was a satisfying read.

I'll be checking out more of this author's books. Five stars!

Writers and Readers:  Do you like a quick read or a book that requires a more thoughtful approach? Please share.

Hi Susan - I can quite see why this book with its story line would entice ... and if I was into that sort of reading ... I'd be there too ... lovely review for us - thank you .. Hilary

This one sounds lovely, Susan.
I like both, depending on my mood and stress level of my life at the time. Right now I'm reading a James Rubart book which is thought-provoking. But I love his writing and stories, so it's worth it!
