About the Book
Not long after a broken engagement, Shannon Turney discovers her neglected niece and nephew, Neal and Jeanie, in a messy house with almost no food, while their mother, B.K. is passed out on her bed. Shannon gains legal custody of them, quits her job in a high end law firm in New York City, changes her cell phone number, pulls all the money out of her bank account, tells her jailed brother they are getting away from B.K., and takes Neal and Jeanie on a road trip. They drive until they end up in Sugar City, New York. Here after meeting the local veterinarian, Phillip Meadows, at the park while walking some dogs that are currently boarding at his clinic, they become fast friends. Phillip helps Shannon find a place for her to live, as well as comes up with an idea for her new job. While Shannon is at work, Phillip’s mom, Marj, volunteers to watch the children. Everything is falling into place, the children’s therapy sessions are going well and Shannon’s relationship with Phillip is proceeding forward to romance. One evening there is a break-in at Shannon’s apartment scaring her and the children. Will Phillip and Shannon’s relationship last? Will Shannon and Neal and Jeanie ever be able to really escape the terrors of the possibility of B.K. bringing them to court before the children’s father gets out of jail and can gain legal custody of them?

Award-winning LDS author, Anita Stansfield, has once again written a story that readers will love and thoroughly enjoy. This story is written about the horrible truths of kids being taken away from their alcoholic and drug addicted parents; the kids are also either put into foster care, sometimes not any better than the situations with their parents, or allowed into the custody of loving relatives. Anita tells a story of the reality of these situations, as well as brings in a story of romance. I would highly recommend this novel to all readers that enjoy Anita Stansfield’s inspirational writing.
