Fate brings the children, Alex and Cara, in the hospital when he suffers an episode of his condition. When Alex talks about the ferret who he finds in his yard every day, Cara realizes it must be hers. This in turn brings their parents together, each with their own insecurities and events from their past.
It’s the Christmas holiday and as the parents talk, they quickly develop a profound emotional bound between each other as they learn about the commonalities they share from their lives. But in order for these two to unite and make each of their broken families into a solid single family unit, they have to first reexamine, and then get go of the baggage from their pasts.
This is a perfect story which not only involves the Christmas spirit, it’s a heart-warming story for any time of the year; which is why I’ve given Ms. Barrett 5 STARS for her endeavor here.
Cara McClean is a young widow struggling to raise her two children. Being a single parent is hard enough, but she has the added pressure of her son having Aspberger’s while dealing with her daughter’s preteen needs as well. Lance Rossiter is a recent widower raising his five year old daughter. He struggles with guilt over his daughters recent injuries while at the same time resenting her pet that she was chasing at the time of the accident.
Lance and Cara meet in his daughter’s hospital room after her son has run in to hide in the bathroom during a school field trip. While not making too much of a connection right off the bat, Lance and Cara run into each other several times in the next couple of days and feel an immediate connection, not just brought on by similar circumstances, but a deeper connection that they cannot immediately understand.
When Cara realizes that the ferret that keeps coming to visit them is Lance’s daughter Tamara’s lost pet, they have an excuse to keep seeing each other as Cara’s son Alex has become very attached. Both Cara and Lance are gun-shy from their less than perfect first marriages and neither is looking for a new relationship. As the bond between them grows, they will both need the strength to take another shot at love.
The characters are all well-developed and you feel for the struggles that each one faces – not only Cara and Lance, but the kids as well. They all learn that you don’t need to be perfect for things to be good.
While in essence this is a Christmas story, the message and feel is great for any time of the year. I would definitely recommend this book.
Lance is a Widower raising his 5 year old daughter Tamara who was just hospitalized due to an accident. When she is able, Tamara asks about her beloved pet ferret Frenzy, who Lance blames for her accident, but has not seen since. Lance has his own insecurities, especially after he finds out a secret about his deceased wife.
A chance meeting in the hospital during one of Alex's meltdowns starts the ball rolling. Frenzy, Tamara's missing pet ferret keeps bringing them together after Alex discovers him and bonds with him. Lance and Cara find comfort in each other after discovering many similarities between them. Their attraction is palpable but due to their feelings of inadequacy and their commitment to meeting the needs of their children they decide to band together as supportive friends. Will Frenzy, along with a matchmaking Ma be able to bring the two families together?
This story really digs deep and shows the struggles of not only being a single parent, the demands of having a special needs member of the family and how it affects everyone, and how important a good support system is no matter what your family dynamic.
As with every other Nikki Lynn Barrett book, I loved the characters and was drawn into the story immediately. You can't go wrong reading a book by Mrs. Barrett and this is another example of that.
This book was so good! I love a story with a pet in it, but this was so much more. A little ferret brings two families together to create one. Lance is struggling to get through the trauma his daughter has faced, and he is feeling alone. Cara is also struggling. Her son has Aspergers, and she feels like she is to blame. Lance and Cara meet because of her son, and the ferret keeps them coming back together. They find that they are able to tell each other things that they can't voice to anyone else, and their bond continues to grow. This was an amazing story about love and trust, and the ability to let go of the past.
