I have always enjoyed reading books by this author. What has made this one so different is the subject matter. This is the first of any Christian fiction books that I know of, that has mentioned “little people.”

Lydia’s husband dies in an accident and then she loses her job. She returns to Charm, OH to help her mom take care of her grandfather and to find some type of work to support herself and her young son.

Lydia is able to find a job fairly fast, but she also learns her mother has not changed her attitude toward Lydia. Nor is she the grandmother Lydia had hoped for.

Then she finds two good men who are interested in her. One man who really only wants a mom for his four sons. His heart still belongs to his late wife. What he really needs is someone to help as a wife would. The other man, who Lydia is most attracted to, is afraid of Lydia’s rejection because of his family who are all little people, except him. Plus, the fear that if they did get married, they may have a child that is a little person and how Lydia may react if that happened.

It is also in Charm, OH that Lydia will feel more pain than she has ever felt before. Will Lydia be able to find happiness again? You will just have to read this book for yourself and see.
