After her husband's sudden death over ten years ago, Kate Westhoven never expected to be lucky enough to find another love of her life. But now she's planning her second walk down the aisle to a perfectly nice man. So why isn't she more excited? At first, Kate blames her lack of sleep on stress. But when she starts seeing Patrick, her late husband, in her dreams, she begins to wonder if she's really ready to move on. Is Patrick trying to tell her something?

Her quest leads her to a sign language class and into the New York City foster system, where she finds rewards greater than she could have imagined"-- Provided by publisher.

I read this in a single evening--I had to know what was going to happen. And then I had a good cry...

A wonderful book I couldn't put it down.

I got this book because I loved "The Sweetness of Forgetting". Kristin Harmel has written another spell-binding book! I was so tempted to look at the end to see what happened, but I resisted and I'm so glad I did.
What a treasure this author is to us. Can't wait to read her next book!
