David McMillan sees this as an opportunity to help his work-obsessed executive assistant to see beyond the job. But to help Keith Watson he must first get the okay from Dr. Maureen Chandler.
Maureen agrees to David's plan to help Keith because she sees this as an opportunity to help Claire, Haley's mom. As the search for this long-lost son progresses healing is about to come into many lives.
Keith, David, Maureen, and Claire are all wounded, hurting people but working together to answer Haley's letter brings unexpected surprises that no one saw coming.

About the Book:
Independent single mom Claire Summers is doing her best to make lemonade out of the lemons life has handed her. Workaholic Keith Watson is interested only in the bottom line--until a letter from Claire's eleven-year-old daughter reaches his desk and changes everything.
As the executive assistant to a philanthropic businessman, Keith is used to fielding requests for donations. But the girl isn't asking for money. She wants help finding the long-lost son of a neighbor. As Keith reluctantly digs into this assignment in his usual results-oriented style, he has no idea how involved he and Claire will become--nor how unusual the results will actually be. Who could have guessed that a child's kindhearted request would bring love and hope to so many lives . . . including his own?
Through compelling characters and surprising plot twists, fan favorite Irene Hannon offers this tenderhearted story that demonstrates how life is like lilacs--the biggest blooms come only after the harshest winters.
