Devon's Dream by Anne Ashby
Time reveals all secrets.Single mum Devon fled Auckland as a pregnant teenager and made a life for herself and her daughter, Trix, in Australia. With her musical career blossoming their future is set. But a car accident while visiting Auckland puts Devon in intensive care and she awakens to learn she has sent Trix to her father. Ignorant of Trix's existence, widowed Rick is bewildered and angry at losing twelve years of his daughter's life. He will not be denied another day with Trix.Trix loves being part of an extended family. To her mother's consternation she tricks Devon into accepting an invitation to stay at Rick's house after release from hospital but will her plan work? Could her scheming bring her parents together?
I was completely captivated with the story and characters in Devon's Dream. Ms. Ashby has weaved an emotional love story with unforgettable people. It is amazing what one phone call can do. It can change your whole life and it does for Rick. I think that Trix and Davey characters were perfect. Trix is so feisty and Davey in need and awe. Devon and Rick are more complex and Ricks parents are so fun. They all seemed to come to life and I felt a connection with them. I like to feel a connection to the people I read about. Ms. Ashby totally delivers. One of my favorite parts of the book was the mess that Davey gets himself into and how Devon helps him out! I honestly think this is a must read story! I can't wait till Ms. Ashby's next book! I know it will be awesome!
Just FYI~ This does contain a few swear words.
