After thirteen years, Lacey is forced to reach out to Alex. Inadvertently, he has bought the land she is leasing on which her home and business reside. As a real estate magnate, Alex is about to tear down her home and business to develop the land into ranch houses. Everything Lacey has worked so hard for is about to be taken from her leaving her destitute.
Gripping, emotional, heart wrenching … this story grabs you right away. What could be more interesting to read than a mother of twins who is fighting for the right to survive?
Lacey and Alex have a past together. He was her first and only love. After he left for the Armed Forces, Lacey was left to contend with the aftermath of their love. Shunned by Alex’s parents, Lacey was forced to depend on the only other person she had in the world – her cantankerous and opinionated grandfather.
There is also Jenna and Jerrod – the twins. They are both hardworking and protective of their mother. Being on the verge of teenage-hood, these two tornadoes make for a lively and intrepid story. As anyone who is a parent knows, this age is the beginning of the most difficult period in a young person’s life. As they assert themselves and attempt to help Lacey, these two provide for more emotional turpitude.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Although at times the plot was predictable, it still provided such enjoyment in reading that I could not help but rate this a 4 Star book. Enjoy!
