Publisher's Summary

Quinn never expected that her best friend’s courageous decision to be a single mother by choice would end up transforming her own life in this poignant novel from USA Today best-selling author Robin Wells.  

When Quinn Langston’s best friend unexpectedly passes away, Quinn embraces Brooke’s three-year-old daughter, Lily, and elderly grandmother Margaret as the family she’s always wanted. She’ll do whatever it takes to help them heal, but she didn’t anticipate Lily’s biological father would be part of the plan. Margaret is old-fashioned, though, and she has no compunction about finding a way to reach Lily’s dad, a sperm donor. 

After all, he's a blood relative, and she believes family should raise family. Zack Bradley doesn't know what to expect when he finds out he has a child. Sperm donors don't usually get to meet their...well, he's not sure what to call Lily yet, but he’s certain he wants to get to know her. There’s just one of problem: He’s about to move to Seattle with his wife, Jessica, who’s undergone multiple infertility treatments, desperately wants a family of her own, and can’t stand the idea of Zack playing daddy to another woman’s child.   

Together, they’ll all learn that the human heart is infinitely expandable and there are many different roads to family.

No words

I can’t begin to say how much I loved this book. I completely fell in love with the characters. The story kept going consistently throughout the whole book. And that narration team? Oh man 💯👌🏼

Too perfect, Irritating narration

Having four narrators do the voice of Lilly (the child) was just too overwhelming. Not one (especially not Therese Plummer) captured the essence of Lilly; Abby Craden's interpretation seemed to be the winner, but still it made the listening difficult. Therese Plummer is great for Virgin River books, but her voice interpretation of Quinn was too gruff. The voice assignments seemed to have been mixed up. Abby Craden's voice was more befitting of Quinn than as the character Jessica. I rarely download books with TP as the narrator because all her female characters sound the same and all her male characters sound the same. So I could be listening to this book, but I'm stuck in Virgin River because her male voice is exactly as gruff as those in Virgin River. Regarding the storyline, well, it was too fairytale-like. Zack went from one relationship to another, and that defied the author's portrayal of Zack being a good and faithful husband. In other words, his actions did not match the author's opinion of him. And, overall, it just had that "guy swoops in at the end to rescue the day" feel...and that isn't interesting or real. The best way for me to judge whether a book has had an effect on my life is: 1. Do I remember all the character's names? No, in this book, I couldn't recall the heroine's name when I sat down to write this review. 2. Do I see the world differently after listening? No; this was just a listen that consumed 13 hours of my time. 3. Can I clearly see ways that I would have changed the manuscript to bring depth to the characters/storyline? Yes. And when I start to take the storyline off into a different direction that opens conversations, makes the reader think differently, etc., the author's material has lost me. Cynthia Darlow seemed to best portray her character.

Jessica. Good grief.

This is a good story. It’s sweet and well written. It has depth and true emotion.
That said, Jessica was completely unlikable for all but a few paragraphs. She was very selfish and small hearted. Zack was way too good for her.
Margaret was also a PITA. I understand why she behaved how she did but she was entirely too old not to know that she could have handled her interference better.
Lily was a delight! Love her and Quinn!

Great story

This was a great story however I have to comment on the THREE year old child. The child was way to involved with adult situations and way to smart for her age.

Terrific Engaging Story

This was a thought-provoking tale that I would recommend... however it is not improved at all my the use of multiple readers, which I felt caused inconsistencies in voice.
