It’s been three years since her husband’s untimely death, and young widow Claire Kite is starting to move on. After selling the house they shared, she finally cleans out David’s home office, where she finds the novel he was working on. Pleasantly surprised that the manuscript is wonderful, albeit unfinished, Claire decides to preserve her husband’s legacy by finding a writer to finish his work and getting the book published. She is convinced that the only man for the job is local author Whitaker Grant, who wrote a successful novel years ago but has been struggling with writer’s block. Persuading Whitaker to take on the project is not easy, but when the two begin working together, their collaboration encompasses more than the task at hand.
VERDICT Walker’s (“Red Mountain Chronicles”) attention-grabbing and surprising plot highlights the engaging characters in this tale of second chances. For fans of women’s fiction such as Nicholas Sparks’s and Kristin Hannah’s work.
