Summary

A grieving widow and a disenchanted writer form an unexpected bond in a novel about second chances and finding the courage to let go of the past.

It’s been three years since Claire Kite lost her husband, David, an aspiring novelist, in a tragic car accident. Claire finally finds the courage to move on; then she discovers among the remnants of her shattered world her husband’s last manuscript. It’s intimate, stirring - and unfinished. An idea comes to her.... What if she can find someone to give David’s novel the ending it deserves?

Whitaker Grant is famous for his one and only bestselling novel - a masterpiece that became a hit film. But after being crippled by the pressure of success and his failed marriage, Whitaker retreated from the public eye in his native St. Petersburg, Florida. Years later, he’s struggling through a deep midlife crisis. Until he receives an intriguing request from a lonely widow. To honor David’s story, Whitaker must understand, heart and soul, the man who wrote it and the woman he left behind. 

There’s more to the novel than anyone dreamed. Something personal. Something true. Maybe, in bringing a chapter of David’s life to a close, Claire and Whitaker can find hope for a new beginning.

Loved it, a Must Read!

This was my first book from this author and I am glad I took a chance because I loved the story. It was well written and easy to follow. It hit all the feelings and was uplifting. On top of the story it really made me think about how to make a positive impact in someone's life.

Loved this book!!

I loved this book, something bad had to happen for something good to happen, that’s how it works sometimes. My only complaint as with any narrated book, let the female narrate females & the male narrate the males if the narrators can’t do the voices of the opposite sex well. Otherwise, great book, I recommend it, u want be disappointed

A novel in finding a new beginning

This was a sensitive portrayal of a life experience by a male writer that went a different way (in my knowledge) than it would have in real life; but a different perspective is what makes a good story. I really enjoyed this book and it did make me think about the woman’s feelings . . . having a very similar experience, I cannot conceive of a woman who really wanted a family to give up, I didn’t. No matter - I do feel it is worthwhile to recommend this novel for all the information given about foster children!

Basically a good book

I didn't care for the males fake over dramatic rendition of the thoughts in his head. Otherwise it was a good story.

I think I need to read this one instead.

I like this author, but was disappointed. I'm in the minority, but the narration ruined it for me. I was excited about the storyline and then met the main characters. I didn't like Claire at all. Want to use the word stalker, but a little too harsh. Annoying pushy or somewhere in between. Whitaker was stuck, but grow up for goodness sakes. And his mother? The narration for her was killed it for me. May have gotten better, more interesting or maybe I'd have grown to care about either Claire or Whitaker, but I didn't so surprisingly for me I couldn't finish. Read it don't listen if you're interested.
