I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this heartwarming tale of a childless couple - good people - getting the child they deserved. Prossers Bay is the small town equivalent of the way the world should be: full of kind, hard-working people ready to help out anyone who has fallen on hard times, especially a defenceless and exceptionally polite little boy whose mother had left him in what she hoped was a safe place while she tried to deal with the danger presented by a rotten, cowardly bully. This short book can be easily and enjoyably read at one sitting, as I did. I have to say it's rare to find a book where you don't have to grow through protracted pain and misery for chapter after chapter before arriving at a conclusion that reaffirms your belief that there may after all be hope for the world. There is so much dystopian fiction around, and I found I was more than ready for a soothing tale of people getting it right from the beginning, despite the difficulties encountered along the way.Peaceseeker
From the Author
This book is the first in a series set in Prossers bay with the second one due out in January. The name Prosser is actually my maiden name and one that I'm proud of, as I am of New Zealand where I live, and it seemed fitting to use it this way.
Although Prossers Bay is fictitious, you can find many small towns like this scattered around our beautiful coasts. Places where old and new share the beautiful scenery and majestic beaches.
Abby and Max's story is one that is a reality for many couples these days. Having children is something most of us have taken for granted, should we choose to do so, but it is never a foregone conclusion and Abby takes the news hard, as well she might after many miscarriages and then the loss of her supportive parents in a car crash. Max, whilst also supportive, feels powerless that his beautiful wife has suffered so much and he can't fix their marriage which has lost it's passion and vibrancy.
This isn't a new love or a young love, but a second chance at a love that was almost perfect.
