Publisher's Summary

LaVyrle Spencer explores the true meaning of unconditional love in this powerful New York Times best seller.

High school principal Tom Gardner feels a sense of shock when he sees Kent Arens, a new transfer student. With one glance, Tom can see that this teenager is the son he never knew he had - the result of a one-night stand on the eve of his wedding years before, now grown into an intelligent, athletic, and polite young man. But the boy's presence has a devastating effect on Tom's family.

As the Gardners careen toward disaster, they test the foundation of trust and respect that their family was built on - and learn that love leaves no choice but forgiveness.

Emotional, heartbreaking and tender

Tom Gardner has the perfect life. He is the principal of the local High School, his wife Claire of eighteen years is a teacher there, and both of their teenage children are students there. Chelsea is a cheerleader and Robby the star quarter back. They are a devoted family and a pillar of the community. In September right before the school year is to begin, a woman and her son enter his office to discuss transferring from Texas. When Tom looks at Kent Arens, its like seeing himself 18 years of age. And when he learns the mother is Monica, the one-night-stand the night ,of his bachelor party, Tom's perfect world will now crumble apart and never be the same. This book is a very emotional, heart-wrenching story. I got so emotionally involved in the story and characters. I had a very hard time putting it down and many times I found tears in my eyes. The characters were so real to me, I could feel their pain, anger, sorrow and anguish. This is such a well written story of family, betrayal, acceptance and forgiveness.This story will stay with me for a long, long time. I would give it more stars if I could.

Emily Sutton-Smith was outstanding with the delivery of the story

Giving “Overall” 3 stars bc

Of the language. I know, it’s like PG13 language. But without it I would have given it 4-5 stars.

Very Good

The character development was very good, showing how it's very easy to build things up to a destructive level in our minds when we are distressed, and how important it is to listen.
