Book Description

Rebecca Parker-Brown has the perfect life, wealthy husband and loving daughter. Life among Toronto’s elite couldn’t be better. When she discovers the ultimate betrayal, Rebecca and Emma move to a remote cottage on the outskirts of Algonquin Provincial Park to start life over again. A chance encounter with a passing stranger changes her future forever. She endures much heartache and suffering on the journey ahead. When her daughter is lost in the Algonquin wilderness during a severe snow storm, on what should have been their first Christmas together in O’Malley’s Cottage, Rebecca reaches breaking point.

Reader Review:

Jan 06, 2012. Brandi rated it. Beautiful story. Be prepared to fall in love. What an utterly wonderful book. Rebecca's courage was amazing but most of all, I fell in love with Emma. At the begnning of the book, I was getting rather fed up with this super sweet, perfect child but once the Brown's moved the the Cottage, Emma was changed. Roger O'Malley was treasure and reminded me of my grandfather with his remembrances of better times.

I know this wasn't a book about sex or hard core romance, but I would have liked to see Chuck reinstroduced a lot sooner. I felt that the connection that Rebecca had with him would have been better explored and would have made the end of the book tidier. Be prepared to grab a few tissues while reading this book.

About the Author

Forty-four years ago my fortune cookie said, “One day your dreams will be recognized and rewarded”. I have held onto that piece of paper for all these years, wondering when that day would come. Thanks to Jamie Hill and Judith Pitman of Books We Love, (Judith thank you for being so patient). To Dr. Hayla Evans for reading the first manuscript and to my wife Catherine Brown, the real driving force behind the writer ... that day is here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming book! Loved reading it, January 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've never felt inclined to write a review before. I have downloaded lots of books since I got a Kindle a year ago, and enjoyed reading many of them.
This book really tugged at my heart strings. I found myself really caring about the characters. It had me laughing and crying. The Omalleys were people that anyone would love to call friends. The Browns came into their lives at a time when the Omalley's needed them. (and when the Brown' really needed them) A great book for people who believe in people and for animal lovers too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read February 25, 2012
By Van
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this story at sometime its made me get upset and then at other times I laughed and was also sadden at some points even crying from certain things that took place. But I'm so happy that I decided to read this book I really hated to see it end and was wishing for a epilogue I like to see how things turn out with people later on. I would encourage anyone looking for a great story to read this and at time you will be on the edge of your seat and want to also scream shout jump up and down and then be thankful all at the same time. I'm a sucker for great endings and I really love the opposite attraction thing especially. I hope whomever purchases this book enjoys it as much as I did!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Agonizing April 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There is a saying that a book should draw you in with the first paragraph - this one never worked for me and I gave it up before I finished chapter one. There two long sentences in the second paragraph: "George carried their daughter into the kitchen, arms wrapped tightly around his neck, she was holding on as he lowered her to the ground, her hands sliding across his brown skin. Rebecca handed him the briefcase, laughing playfully as he pulled her close to him,kissing her repeatedly on the neck, her coffee-colored cheeks taking on a delicate red glow." Really?? Then later on in chapter one, a police officer appeared in the story who was just not a believable character. At that point I realized I did not like any of the characters nor the writing style of the author and I had zero interest in reading any more. The only good thing is that the book was free. There are too many better books around to waste my time reading any more of this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected treat.... July 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a free read and I grabbed it quickly. I'm so glad I did. The first couple of pages had me misjudging Rebecca. I thought she was going to be an uppidity rich lawyer's wife however I was pleasantly surprised. This book was filled with so much warmth and love. Rachael was a good big sister to Rebecca and Rebecca loved her daughter, Emma. The rest of the book was just filled with friendships that were unexpected but had me reading more and more to see what happened next. I won't give anything away except to say if you want to read a book twists and twists then get this book. I don't think you will be disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreal, boring and unreadable September 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ok. I just couldn't do it ! The book seemed so interesting but it is sooooo boring! Everyone is overly polite. The sisters continue to call each other by their full name and majority of the time adding "Miss" in front of it. Like why are we being so formal?! The jokes are pathetic and lame. Don't waste your time. I couldn't make it past 20% and it took me days to do it. I've read 3 books and tried to come back to it. I would re write it and take out a lot of this politeness. It seems unreal. No family interacts that way.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Heartwarming Novel July 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
O'malley's Cottage is a heart-warming read. Once again the author demonstrates his talent in creating sympathetic characters that make his stories spring to life! I immediately connected with Rebecca and her daughter, Emma, and cared deeply about what happened to them. And the O'Malleys were a nostalgic elderly couple that embodied sheer goodness plus down-to-earth realism. I heartily recommend this book and give it 5 stars!
