One Perfect Spring by Irene Hannon

Independent single mom Claire Summers is doing her best to make lemonade out of the lemons life has handed her. Workaholic Keith Watson is interested only in the bottom line--until a letter from Claire's eleven-year-old daughter reaches his desk and changes everything.

As the executive assistant to a philanthropic businessman, Keith is used to fielding requests for donations. But the girl isn't asking for money. She wants help finding the long-lost son of a neighbor. As Keith reluctantly digs into this assignment in his usual results-oriented style, he has no idea how involved he and Claire will become--nor how unusual the results will actually be. Who could have guessed that a child's kindhearted request would bring love and hope to so many lives . . . including his own?

Through compelling characters and surprising plot twists, fan favorite Irene Hannon offers this tenderhearted story that demonstrates how life is like lilacs--the biggest blooms come only after the harshest winters.

My Review:

Irene Hannon’s One Perfect Spring is a one perfect story, from beginning to end; I didn’t want it to end. The story made it so real life, and yet maybe at times to real. This is a book that once you turn the final page, it will linger with you and you won’t forget.
We have not one, but two romances that made me feel like I was one of them. We face head on cancer, and touch on child abuse, and divorce among others. The main characters are rather strong woman and survivors. There is a strong display of Faith shone which tends to lead others to the Lord, in this case a nudge back on the right path.
The young lady here, an eleven-year old and quite precocious and loveable begins the story with her kindness and love. She is such a delight and really reminded me of how truthful children can be, and sometimes embarrassing. Oh my!! Say it like it is!
There are a few side stories here and some will make you want to cry, the hard decisions of adults, and you see what some of the wrong ones were. A lot of powerful messages here, and as life goes by we let them past, until we run out of time.
I for one cannot wait for Ms. Hannon’s next book; it will be on the top of my TBR pile.

I received this book through the Revell Blogger Tour, and was not required to give a positive review.
