Product description

From the Publisher

What if you could save a child in need, but she would be a constant reminder of past hardship and heartache? Could you do it? Our heroine, Christy-Lynn Parker, never wanted to have kids. She had a horrible childhood—first with her drug-addled mother, next in foster care, and ultimately out on the streets. To Christy-Lynn’s relief, her husband never pushed for children. In fact, she thought he didn’t want them at all. So imagine her shock when she finds out after his death that he had a daughter named Iris with another woman—the same woman he died with in the depths of an icy bay in Maine.

Orphaned, Iris will likely end up a ward of the state. Christy-Lynn knows firsthand the perils of foster care. But Iris is not her responsibility. Moreover, she’s the product of her husband’s affair—how could anyone possibly expect Christy-Lynn to intervene? At the same time, she can’t seem to walk away. Each time she tries, she’s drawn back, asking herself whether she can face the nightmares of her childhood to save Iris.

It’s this question that had me hooked. What would I do in this situation? Could I set aside my hurt and grief? Could I open up my heart? Can Christy-Lynn? Let’s just say that in this achingly beautiful novel, author Barbara Davis deftly proves that there really is something to the old saw “Never say never.”

- Jodi Warshaw, Editor

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

After twelve years in the jewelry business, I finally surrendered to the muse, leaving the corporate world in order to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a writer. I was born in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, but grew up and attended school in Florida. Eventually, work led me north, where I lived in Charleston for two years, and in Raleigh for fourteen, before eventually making my home in Dover, New Hampshire, which makes me a Yankee, turned southerner, turned Yankee. (I think.)

When I'm not writing I'm an avid reader, foodie, and lover of music, a rabid football fan, and a devoted Florida Gator. I also enjoy travel with my husband/sweetheart, (same guy, I promise) who over the years has learned much more about publishing and the craft of writing than he ever wanted to know.

My most recent novel, THE KEEPER OF HAPPY ENDINGS, releases October 1, 2021. I am currently working on my eighth novel, and am still just as delighted with my job as I was the day I set my first word on the page!
