Summary (From the publisher):

Gordon McKenna, at age twenty-four, thinks he's already heard the worst news his life will ever deliver when he learns that his only sister, Georgia, is fatally ill. But then, Georgia and her husband die in a car accident, leaving behind their baby daughter, Keefer. Gordon and his parents are able to survive their sorrow only by devoting themselves heart and soul to the care of the beloved one-year-old.

Yet, the decision of who will raise Keefer, and how, is far from over. Gordon's most basic assumptions about the security and identity of his family will be threatened in ways so provocative that the McKennas will be driven first to disbelief and then to outrage. Their ordeal will test the limits of love within a closely knit family again and again, challenging even love's ultimate capacity to heal.

Blurbs:
  • "When real life inspires fiction, an authentic and convinving voice is often the happy result. Here Mitchard draws on her own experience as an adoptive parent and as a one-time participant in a custody suit to produce gripping fiction. She excels in rendering domestic scenes and family relationships while providing a suspenseful story that tugs at the heartstrings." Publishers Weekly
