It was the surprise of a lifetime for recluse Molly McCreight when single dad Ethan Hunter entrusted her with his infant daughter while he delivered medicine to an elderly man during an ice storm. Past experience had taught Molly how fragile life could be, but she was touched by this stranger’s faith in her abilities. Once the storm had passed, though, and her guests returned home, normalcy eluded Molly. The Hunters’ presence had brought much-needed joy to her quiet world, but their absence threatened to crush her forever. Still, was she ready to admit that this tiny family held the key to the future she’d always secretly craved?
Ethan Hunter shows up one stormy, snowy evening at Molly McCreight’s secluded door. He’s on a mission to deliver life saving medication to Molly’s neighbor but the roads are getting treacherous. He wants to leave his baby daughter with Molly till he gets back. Molly is terrified of babies since her sister’s infant son died from SIDS while in her care.
I realize that the point of Christian books are to remind us how God helps and loves us – but this was the saddest romance I’ve read in a long time. Both the hero and the heroine go through some serious emotional turmoil. The relationship between Molly and her family was just horrible. Even though they [her family] know that there was nothing she could do to save her sister’s baby…they shunned her as if the death was her fault. The story of Nick’s child’s mother is very sad as well. By the end I just wanted the book to be over.
