Widows--Fiction; Single mothers--Fiction; Mormon women--Fiction
Beverly and David have welcomed a new baby boy into their lives. Suddenly the future is changed when Dave dies in a hit-and-run accident. Devastated, Beverly does her best to cope with being a young widow and single parent. She finds she doesn't really fit anywhere-not with the younger singles, not with the older widows, not with divorced women, and not with married people.
Bolstered by her faith, she carries on. Simultaneously helped and hindered by the well-meaning efforts of others, she longs for the day when she will no longer be the "ward service project." She eventually reluctantly re-enters the dating scene. After enduring her allotment of blind-dates-from-hell, she runs into an old college boyfriend who is divorced and fighting for custody of his three daughters. They struggle to make their relationship work, as both of them face their own unfinished business. [from publisher website]
