We all want to belong, never more so than in our own families. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. Sometimes it is an act of fate that separates us from our loved ones. Other times it is a choice or a differing point of view.
Hannah Callahan wants a child and a family of her own. With no husband on the horizon, she decides to adopt a baby girl from Taiwan. Her father wants her to wait and marry and have a family the old-fashioned way. When Hannah refuses, a rift is created that seems unbridgeable.
Joe Daugherty was orphaned at age eight. He went to live with relatives, and never quite fit in. He could, however, briefly blend in with strangers.
Destiny brings Joe to Summit, Texas for the spring and summer. He is researching a travel guide, and will soon be leaving. So when Hannah Callahan catches his eye, he ignores his desire. Until the day she needs him to accompany her to Taipei to meet and adopt her new daughter. Joe agrees to go, but only on the stipulation that he not become involved in any of the family stuff. Family is not his forte.
Hannah concedes, but baby Isabella Zhu Ming Callahan has other ideas, right from the start. A cuter matchmaker could not be found. But could she make their love last…?
I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it.
And, as always, best wishes,
