I absolutely loved this book! Right from the very start you know you are going to adore Tristan. Told from his point of view, you follow Tristan's decision to go from a confirmed and cynical bachelor to a man who wants a child of his own and will do anything he can to have one, including paying a single mom. This story had me from the very first page and kept me riveted to the heartwarming end.
Tristan was easy to like, very honest and had plenty of faults that were so realistic that you could easily relate to him. There were times when I laughed out loud, felt a tear form in my eye, and most of all felt the tug on my heart strings while Tristan fumbled his way through life and the momentous decisions he had made. Although sometimes I stumbled a bit with Marie's dialect, I loved her character and continued reading eagerly. Spunky, wise and caring, she did a fabulous job in grounding Tristan, and she was the perfect contrast for him. Mr. Evans did a fantastic job in expressing how much Marie teaches him during the story, and you cannot help but admire her strength. I cannot recommend this story high enough. A five-star + for feel-good factor!
