In this heartwarming follow up to Carry Her Heart, the infant daughter Piper Chesterfield gave up for adoption so many years ago has grown into an accomplished young woman. When Piper’s husband shows up on Siobhan Ahearn’s doorstep, he makes a request that Siobhan longs to grant for the birthmother she’s never met. But time in all its finite ways threatens to be short.
As Piper battles a life-threatening illness, both mother and daughter struggle to make up for the years apart. Reading Piper’s journals and published works, Siobhan finds herself overwhelmed by the prospect of suddenly absorbing a lifetime of another mother’s love.
Logan Greer has benefited from Piper’s mothering influence from when he was young, and he’s uniquely qualified to help Siobhan see all the ways Piper’s love for the daughter she gave up inspired the outpouring of compassion she provided to families in need. And his close proximity in the shared guest house doesn’t hurt his ability to become a much needed support system either. . . With the help of this handsome friend-of the family, Siobhan must decide if she has enough room in her heart to love the family who raised her, the family who loved her from afar, and the charming man whose plans may not include staying close to family for the foreseeable future.
