"When Kyra Latimer loses her husband to a freak accident in Manhattan, she can't absorb the fact of his absence and can't imagine how she'll be able to move into the future without him. But on the day of his funeral, the unimaginable happens." "A young woman, with a small boy in tow, shows up at Kyra's home, claiming to be the child Kyra surrendered for adoption some twenty-odd years before. Refusing to accept the truth - that she cannot possibly be Kyra's child - Jennifer Cullen insists on leaving her three-year-old son, Jesse, with his "grandmother." If Kyra won't take the boy, Jennifer is going to turn him over to Children's Aid." "Touched by the boy's visible neglect, and as deaf to reason in her own way as Jennifer is in hers, Kyra agrees to keep Jesse. Kyra and Jesse flourish and founder in unanticipated ways. Until, finally, Kyra is forced to confront an impossible choice: whether or not to honor the life-or-death decision of her adopted son."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
