A forgotten secret. A shocking discovery. A sacrifice of love that will bring Connor Evans to his knees.

A story of hope and redemption from #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury.

Airline pilot Connor Evans and his wife, Michele, seem to be the perfect couple living what looks like a perfect life. Then a plane goes down in the Pacific Ocean. One of the casualties is Kiahna Siefert, a flight attendant Connor knew well. Too well. Kiahna’s will is very clear: before her seven-year-old son, Max, can be turned over to the state, he must spend the summer with the father he’s never met, the father who doesn’t know he exists: Connor Evans. Now will the presence of one lonely child and the truth he represents destroy Connor’s family? Or is it possible for healing and hope to appear in the shape of a seven-year-old boy?

“[Kingsbury’s] ability to accurately express life’s sorrows and grief through her characters’ inner dialogue rings true time and again.” —Publishers Weekly on Every Now & Then

“Her emotionally charged novels often contain a strong romantic component and feature Christians at odds with their everyday world. This title is no exception. Recommend this one to readers who enjoy well-drawn characters and contemporary settings.” —Library Journal on The Baxters Take Four

WOW. This book is the worst! I can handle a light read every now and then but this??? "Mommy says, ..." in a whiny baby voice, every single time Max talks! He's seven, not three!!! The imported music during scenes of potential drama? Are you kidding me? Then it stops, suddenly, by the time you figure out it was intentional. And 'Mommy' brings me to see butterflies so often that they tell the same story every time? C'mon, this isn't even close to believable. Michelle is pathetic, I want to slap Max out of his CONSTANT whining, and Connor is just dumb. I hope the author and narrator can forgive this review but I just can't believe I wasted $15 on this and I must help some other potential listener from the torture that is this story. I would rather drink corn syrup straight from the bottle than listen to another chapter. Audiobooks? Do you have any standards?
