Although the author did a fine job of updating me on the first three books I just couldn’t get into the story or the characters. I did not particularly like Nick and although he had problems I couldn’t get past his leaving his new born daughter after his wife died at childbirth. For seven years he was gone and never ever held his baby. Now he is back and for the last two years he has tried to make amends.
His wife’s twin brother Jeff adopted Abby and she is growing up happy calling Nick uncle which he is more than happy with. Now it has been a year that he has been in a relationship with Leon and he still can’t commit to living together and definitely have different opinions when it comes to having children something Nick is not ready for and may never be ready for.
When Abby’s best friend Ben’s foster parents have to leave town they think nothing of packing a bag and dropping him off to be someone else’s problem. Leon would love to have Ben live with them but Nick isn’t willing to live with a child, any child. It was Ben that touched my heart just another story of a fractured foster care system and the children that suffer.
Ben and Abby were the reason I continued to read this story because they were the only characters I could relate to.
