SOMETIMES WE FIND THE FAMILY WE WERE ALWAYS MEANT TO HAVE
Acclaimed novelist Luanne Rice "touches the deepest, most tender corners of the heart". Her stories remind us how precious and fragile life can be -- and that we must risk our hearts every day to know happiness.
Abandoned by her husband, Tim McIntosh, before their daughter was born, Dianne Robbins has spent eleven years caring for her exceptional child's every need -- almost alone. It was Tim's brother, Alan, the town pediatrician, who stood by Dianne and her daughter, Julia. Throughout years of waiting, watching, and caring, Alan hid his love for his brother's wife. But Dianne has closed her heart toward men -- especially men named McIntosh. It will take a very special twelve-year-old to remind them that love comes in many forms, and can be received with as much grace as it is given.
As lyrical and moving as the poetry of nature, Follow the Stars Home is a miracle of storytelling that will take your breath away.
