It is 1953 and Katie O'Neill is suddenly widowed and thrust into a strange and frightening world. She finds herself flat broke with four young sons to raise. Heartbreak, desperation and loss are her constant companions. Then, with the arrival of the letter from the attorney, fate dangles a carrot of salvation before her. It appears that her prayers have finally been answered. Desperately, she hangs their hopes on an ambiguous inheritance and transplants her brood 1000 miles from Boston to Eden Croft, Michigan. However, she soon discovers that her journey will be more than one of mere distance. Katie will experience a wondrous journey of the heart, soul and spirit that she could never have imagined. Her life and that of her sons inevitably become entangled with a trio of characters that are flawed, quirky, intriguing and endearing. Matt Mulholland, the sexy, spoiled attorney rekindles the flame of romance and passion that Katie thought had forever been buried with her husband. Lottie Devereaux, wise, worldly, naughty and outrageous, forms an unlikely connection with Katie. Abraham Franke hides a devastating secret behind a wall of isolation and alienation. Yet, through Katie and her sons, he is forced to faces the difficult lesson that forgiveness and faith must be unconditional. It is in this shared adventure that Katie and her sons, tested by the painful lessons of life, learn the true meaning of love and friendship. The characters shed tears of laughter as well as loss as they run the gamut of human emotions and discover the poignant truth that life is never a solitary experience. They will learn that the human attachments they forge can transcend time, space and even death. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Mary Kremer was born and raised in Saginaw, Michigan.
