What happens when the tidy, prosperous life of an urban couple is turned inside out by a tragedy with unexpected consequences? After a car crash leaves their friend Marcus dead and his wife Sarah in a coma, Ana and James are shocked to discover that they have become the legal guardians of a 2½-year-old, Finn. Finn's crash-landing in their lives throws into high relief deeply rooted, and sometimes long-hidden, truths about themselves, both individually and as a couple. Several chaotic, poignant, and life-changing weeks as a most unusual family give rise to an often unasked question: Can everyone be a parent?

Get this book. You won't be sorry. And you won't be able to put it down.
This book is a mystery...not really, of course...but when a car accident leaves a woman in coma, her husband deceased and their little boy unscathed, a childless couple is tasked with rising to the challenge of caring for Finn.
The story is compelling enough: James and Ana had tried for years to have their own child when Finn is essentially gifted to them. Does this answer their prayers? Is this everything they ever wanted? Neither James nor Ana are particularly likeable people, but they make interesting observations, and it is interesting to watch their new role as guardians unfold.
The ebook version has a couple editing issues, but an otherwise readable book.
