Clean Reads. 2016

Still reeling from the tragic death of his best friend, Will Wright is now the guardian to the man's two young children. He is further stunned when his biological daughter appears on his doorstep.

After years of dreaming of children, Charlotte Miller would give anything for her foster daughter, even if it means creating a temporary family with the girl's father.

At first building a family from five hurting, fragmented people seems impossible, but slowly they come together. Just as things seem to be going perfectly, something happens that threatens to tear their fragile family apart. Do Will and Charlotte have what it takes to fight through the challenges for love and family?
