At seventeen, Sarah Colby had been scared and desperate.
Her marriage to Reece Colby was faltering. They were nearly destitute and their infant son, Drew, needed on-going medical care they couldn’t afford. Sarah felt her world crumpling around her. Then her mother-in-law, Elizabeth, offered Sarah a solution. Elizabeth would make certain Drew got the medical attention he needed if Sarah would walk away from her husband and son. Believing she had no other option, Sarah accepted Elizabeth’s offer—though leaving them was the hardest thing she’d ever done.
Now, twelve years later, Sarah's still questions that decision. So when she learns that Drew's in trouble, she knows it's time to break her agreement with Elizabeth. Drew needs the mother he’s never known and Sarah needs to help her son. But how can she face Reece after deserting him? And what will happen when he finds out about Lyssa, the daughter he doesn't know he has?
Wrong decision, right reasons
A second chance love story that’s a long time coming. Sarah left her husband, Reece, and sick infant son thinking she was giving them a chance at a better life, which they received. Twelve years later, she comes back because her son, Drew, needs her. The ensuing reveal makes for a very good second chance love story when we throw in the lies, betrayal and guilt, oh and the previously unknown daughter that’s heaped on top of everything. I liked how Ms Keelyn realistically portrayed the anger Reece felt. And how Sarah didn’t feel like she had any other choice at 18 years old, with wealthy in-laws pulling the strings. I also liked how Sarah and Reece were slowly allowed to grow and come back to each other, based on the underlying love that was still beneath everything else they were feeling. The children were well-written, and nearly stole the show. I also loved Sarah’s grandmother. I received a complimentary copy of this book from eBook Discovery. This is my freely given, honest review.
