A new memoir from Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author Cathy Glass. When Cathy receives a call about a terminally ill widower terrified of leaving his son all alone in the world, she is wracked with sadness and indecision. Can she risk exposing her own young children to a little boy on the brink of bereavement? Eight year old Michael is part of a family of two, but with his beloved father given only months to live and his mother having died when he was a toddler, he could soon become an orphan. Will Cathy’s own young family be able to handle a child in mourning? To Cathy’s surprise, her children insist that this boy deserves to be as happy as they are, prompting Cathy to welcome Michael into her home. A cheerful and carefree new member of the family, Michael devotedly prays every night, believing that when the time is right, angels will come and take his Daddy to be with his Mummy in heaven. However, incredibly, in the weeks that pass, the bond between Cathy’s family, Michael and his kind and loving father Patrick grows. Even more promising, Patrick is looking healthier than he’s done in weeks. But just as they are settling into a routine of blissful normality, an unexpected and disastrous event shatters the happy group, shaking Cathy to the core. Cathy can only hope that her family and Michael’s admirable faith will keep him strong enough to rebuild his life.

I laughed and cryed with this story, it just seemed to real. The people that Michael went to live with eventually seem really nice and caring people.

This book was extremely difficult for me to read because it basically made me think of what my children and myself went through when my husband passed away from lung cancer. I shed many many tears while reading this. It also helped me to understand a little better what my children... At the ages of 11,12,13 & 14....went through. I learn so much from all of Cathy Glass's books. I now help raise my three grandchildren and live with my son and his wife and feel so very blessed to be a part of their family. Thankyou cathy glass from the bottom of my heart for teaching me patience and understanding and giving me tools to better cope with certain situations. 5 stars.
