But exoneration will come with a price. With her marriage in trouble and her father refusing to answer any questions about her adoption, Claire begins the search for her birth mother. For the first time in her life, she really wants to know where she came from. But what if the woman who gave her life doesn't want to be found?

This book made me feel really good. It had such a happy ending after the way it started out. Clair is Christmas shopping and runs into and old friend who tells her she has found her birth parents and suggest that , since Clair is also adopted she should search for her also. Claire is still reeling from several recent losses and has turned to alcohol and prescription drugs for comfort. She and her husband have separated. When she takes a trip to Maine, she finds a lot more that she bargained for. She finds out that GOD really is there for her and that he make ever thing happen for a reason.
I was so happy for Claire; I would love to read more about her and to find out what is in store for her bright future. This story is filled with so many likable characters. Great job Catherine West.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
