A fresh start is a gift. So is having a hand to hold. Jade and Max share a deep love, though revelations from his past have recently shaken their marriage. And Jade is completely smitten with Max's little son, Asa, whom she is now raising as her own. Their blended family brings her a joy she's never known. But there is one more secret to be uncovered. One that will impact them all. Max is doing his best to "man-up" and prove himself worthy of Jade's devotion. As well as that of his young son. It seems like life in Whisper Hollow, Tennessee, will pick up where it left off until Max is faced with an unusual opportunity—leave his family's law firm to coach high-school football in Texas. Realizing a fresh start will bring healing to their marriage, Jade takes the leap of faith and moves with him and baby Asa, bidding good-bye to her beloved Blue Umbrella shop. The new beginning in quaint Colby, Texas, is soon sullied when Max discovers the high-school program isn't all it seemed. While Max struggles to rebuild a once glorious football team, Jade wrestles with news that could break Max's heart... and change their lives forever.

*Starred Review* Jade Benson feels that she can never trust her husband, Max, again. Not only did he cheat on her with her best friend, Rice, but a baby resulted from the affair. When Rice dies in an airplane accident, Max brings the toddler into their home. Two-year-old Asa is the brightest spot in Jade’s life. Despite the boy’s beginnings, Jade feels nothing but love for him. But Jade’s world is about to crash again. She receives news that Max isn’t Asa’s dad, and the biological father knows it. Jade has survived infidelity, miscarriage, and major damage to her shop by an out-of-control car, but losing Asa could very well be the thing that destroys her. Country singer and songwriter Evans and novelist Hauck (Dining with Joy, 2010) have proven to be a winning team. This third installment in the story of Jade and Max (The Sweet By and By, 2009; Softly and Tenderly, 2011) carries the same emotional wallop as the first two. Although libraries will want all three volumes, this one also works well as a stand-alone novel. --Shelley Mosley
