REVIEW by LAWonder10:
Principal Eric Wells returned to the place he grew up in, then had to leave. Now he was back to the town he loved, the "fixer-upper" home he'd always wanted, and was performing in his "dream job". The only thing he felt was missing was the girl he'd always loved but neverbhad a chance with.
Amy Morgan and her precious daughter, Cassie, moved back to live, once again, with Amy's grandparents who raised her. She had neglected to be for them a she should have because she was trying desperately to save her failed marriage. She had loved Scott Morgan from her early youth. She was delighted when in High School he noticed her and they became an "item". To her grandparents dismay, she married him right out of High School and moved to Chicago... Had she truly loved him, or was it the image and idea of him? Whatever, he was definitely self-centered and not "cut out" to be a Dad. He made false promises and was seldom around.
Now, months after her divorce, she was where she needed to be. Her grandparents needed help and she needed someone to help with Cassie, while she was at her part time job. Cassie often "acted out", causing problems because of her instability with her parents relationship. Therefore, it was no surprise when shortly admitting her daughter to the new school, she was notified she needed to meet with the principle concerning her daughter's rebelliousness.
Eric and Amy had worked together on the school paper and were friends. They had both changed. However, Amy was quite impressed with the way he confronted issues with his students. The more she became acquainted with him, the more she was impressed.
This is a familiar scenario of life in a small town. Many of the youth are anxious to leave, yet often, it is the place they return to. Also, it suggested how often views of youth change and what really matters becomes much more clear.
This is a wonderful small town story with typical small town dilemmas. It is a relaxing drama with a few "twists".
The characters feel very real and the scenes easily visualized. It just slightly lacks depth for a Five Stars rating from me so I offer a Four Stars rating.
*This book was gifted me with no pressure for a positive review.
This is my honest review.
