Publisher's Summary

Emily Bell believes in destiny. To her, being forced to sing a solo in the church choir - despite her average voice - is fate: because it's while she's singing that she first sees Sam. At first sight they are connected.

Sam Border wishes he could escape, but there's nowhere for him to run. He and his little brother, Riddle, have spent their entire lives constantly uprooted by their unstable father. As Sam and Riddle are welcomed into the Bells' lives, they witness the warmth and protection of a family for the first time. But when tragedy strikes, they're left fighting for survival in the desolate wilderness - and wondering if they'll ever find a place where they can belong.

Needs to be a film!

What did you love best about I'll Be There?

The author and the reader painted such a clear, in-depth picture of the story that I felt I was seeing the movie of it play in my mind's eye.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

True-to-life characters and serious story seasoned with the right amount of wit, adventure and romance!

H.G.Sloan has done it again!

I'll Be There is gripping from first sentence until last! I'm eager to jump into the rest of the story with Just Call My Name.

Good story but...

The narrator ruined it for me. I’m sorry but she is whispering and it’s putting me to sleep. She sound like she is bored and need a bit more energy.
