Can they find their way to the right future amid the uncertainty that faces them?
In the midst of WWII, Jane Linder pours all her energy and dreams for a family into her career at the Toronto Children’s Aid Society. As acting directress, Jane hopes for a permanent appointment so she can continue making a difference in the lives of children. But if the board were to find out she is divorced, everything would change.
Garrett Wilder has been hired to overhaul operations at the Children’s Aid Society and investigate a report of misused funds. He hopes to impress the board members with his findings and earn the vacant director’s position. A war injury ended his dream of taking over his parents’ farm, but with the security of the director’s job, he’d be able to contribute financially and help save the family business.
Despite their competing interests and Garret’s early suspicions, a friendship grows and feelings begin to blossom. But when Jane receives an unexpected opportunity that could fulfill her deepest desires, she finds herself at a crossroads. Can she discern the path to true happiness?
I read the first book in this series and thoroughly enjoyed it so I definitely wanted to read the second on and I have to say this one is just as good.
I loved getting to know Jane and Garrett and the heartache they had to overcome. I knew there would be a wrench thrown into the mix at the end, and honestly there were a few wrenches, but it all works out at the end, of course. But the journey to get there is very interesting and a great read.
If you enjoy historical fiction I have no doubt you will be thrilled with this book.
