After her husband Stan acquired ownership of her long-lost family estate, Leslie thought life was almost perfect. Then her friend Carrie discovers documents hidden in an old buffet. This may change everything, but should she tell Leslie? Mae learns that Sonny has a hidden secret since moving to Willow Green. This reminds her of the haunting truth about the day Carrie's ex-husband Bill died. Will she decide to tell the truth after all this time? Sandra is certain the parental identities of her adopted daughter are a closely guarded secret. Or are they? Laney hopes for a house full of children. Her struggle to pregnancy is disheartening, but the series of letters Leslie shares helps her find a new way to cope. As Leslie discovers more letters it leads her on a journey paved with serendipitous blessings among the chaos. When grief collides with joy they all gain what they never knew they needed.

I laughed, I cried and I gasped at parts of the story that shocked me. An amazing story about learning to live with what life brings your way and intentionally overcoming. I enjoyed reading another layer of their lives after enjoying the first novel so much.
