After abut ten years away, Megan is going home with her eleven-year old daughter. She had left when she learned she was pregnant. Not the life her parents envisioned or wanted for her. Megan has spent the time with her eccentric Aunt Anna, who is an actress and lots of fun, in a different sort of way. However, can anyone, Megan included, ever really go home after all this time? What happens when she and her parents confront the past and try to make life work in the present? What happens when Megan’s daughter, Skye, encounters her father for the very first time in a chips shop? How does Megan (or can she) relate to her first and only real love, Lucas, when she encounters him in her hometown and begins to develop a relationship all over again. This is a fantastic romance about what once was, what is now and what can be in the future. I loved the story from the very start and found it difficult to put down once I became a part of Megan’s life, and the author really did make me a part (as will happen with every reader) of this rich, full life. I was totally taken in by Megan and her precocious daughter, Skye, and her wonderful Aunt Anna. As I read, I fund Skye was wise way beyond her years. Megan was a once young run away who found herself pregnant much to her and her parents’ dismay but who soldiered on with the help of Anna to become a fierce, loving mother who put the needs of her child before everything else. I loved the chemistry between Lucas and Megan, which obviously had been well developed before she left and quickly became a big part of the story once they got back together. I cannot decide who I loved more, Skye, precocious and endearing, or Megan’s Aunt Anna, so eccentric but so loving that I could not help but fall for her. I have not read any other author’s other works, but, after this one, I will be looking for them. I am always on the look-out for a new, fantastic author whose works can speak to me, and I think A.L. Michael is such an author. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good romantic feel good story that captures the true spirit of the holiday season. I am very glad NetGalley gave this to me in return for and honest review. ( )
