This the second novel I have read from Author Kathryn Daugherty. From the moment I first started reading it the story drew me into the heartache and dilemma the protagonist Carol Matthews is thrown into shortly after her only brother Jim dies in a traffic accident. Carol has helped him raise his son after the lose of their parents and his wife since his son Jeff was five months old. Four months after his death Carol is served with court papers petitioning the court to remove Jeff from her custody and be placed in the custody of Jeff’s maternal grandparents. Everywhere she turns for help, the answer is no. Now the only chance she has to keep custody of Jeff is to put her trust in a down on his luck lawyer, Donovan Delaney.
The story is intense on how fragile life can be and how faith is the only thing that stables the chaos from crushing one’s soul.

I just heard a politically correct advertisement on TV that made me angry. It was not for the environment, standing up against bullying, caring about the starving animals, feed the children, or saving the whales. It was upbeat, pleasing to the eyes, good to eat, they even used a comedian as their spokesman.
“What?” You say, “Why would you be upset by that?”
The comedian was saying no matter whether you cook or not have a Happy Friendsgiving. Really? Happy Friendsgiving? Apparently, stating Have a Happy Thanksgiving is no loner the correct thing to say. Apparently, being thankful for what the Lord allowed us to have is also taboo. Things like family, our health, even the very air we breathe, should be given praise to friends who had nothing to do with it.
We used to be THANKFUL for friends we have, the people who loves us, the job we have so we can put food on the table and the roof over our heads, for the freedom we have that was fought for by our ancestors, THANKFUL FOR THE GREATEST GIFT given to us, The Lord’s mercy and love.
From Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays, now from Happy Thanksgiving to Happy Friendsgiving. And people wonder why the USA is in the horrible shape it is today? Why people are so selfish? Why people no longer care?
Could it be that they are bombarded with reasoning being self-center, thoughts of what’s in it for me?, thoughts of if it doesn’t profit me I’m not doing it, thoughts of I am the most important person, other people do not matter, my feelings before all others.
I say let’s stand up against this invasion of our freedom of expression. Stand up proudly with me and greet everyone the Lord sends across our path with a very “Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas”. Stand up and be politically incorrect.
