Dreams change. That is the lesson that Libby Morgan is facing in Debbie Macomber’s newest book. Libby Morgan has worked hard to make partnership in her law firm. One day she is called into the senior partner’s office knowing full well that the offer was coming her way. By the time that she leaves his office, she is unemployed.

Months go by with no job offers, her friends try to help but with this economy, there is not much out there for a talented estate attorney. Wanting to fill her time, she decides to try her hand at knitting and learns that the local hospital accepts items for their neo-natal ward.

Upon their first delivery of knitted items, Libby and two young girls run into an attractive but rather cold-hearted doctor. The unexpected meeting and the news that he reveals to Libby changes both the direction and trajectory of her life.

Debbie Macomber’s books are relaxing summer reads. There is always a slight twist, but nothing high-end that the reader has to be prepared for. The slow meandering flow leads to a predictable conclusion full of young romance. Take a break from the world and settle in for a relaxing afternoon.
