About the book:
All Maggie Acker ever wanted was to have a family of her own. Now, with a handsome, hardworking husband, Josh, and two adorable twin boys from his previous marriage, she is determined to be the wife and mother that Josh’s ex-wife failed to be.
But when one of the twins has a near fatal health scare and is later diagnosed with diabetes, Maggie blames herself for not seeing the signs sooner. As the rest of the family slowly learns to live with the diagnosis, Maggie fights to gain control of her son’s health. Coupled with a major career change for Josh, their marriage teeters on the brink of destruction.
When Maggie’s family sends the couple away for a much-needed vacation, a life-rocking argument is followed by terrifying news regarding their son. Will Maggie’s childhood dreams of love and family disappear before she realizes what was right in front of her?
A contemporary twist on the well-loved classic, Little Women, readers will fall in love with the Martin family—Maggie, Josie, Lizzie, Bronson, Amie, and their mother Hannah—each trying to find their own way in the world and each discovering that love, home, and hope are closer than they appear.
I really enjoyed this new installment in The Orchard House Bed and Breakfast series! I would highly recommend readers reading this series in order to fully understand the story and to avoid spoilers. Maggie was one of my favorite characters in the first book, so I was excited to read her story. I really enjoyed reading about her and Josh and their boys. I liked how they had to overcome a real struggle that many face. I can’t wait to see what is in store for them in the rest of this series!
