In love for the first time, a son’s decision about the future divides his family.
When eighteen-year-old Tommy Baxter tells his family that he wants to be a police officer, his mother, Reagan, won’t hear of it. After all, she’s still mourning the 9/11 death of her father, and—with civil unrest in the streets—Reagan is determined to keep her son safe from danger. But conflict arises when Tommy’s father, Luke, approves of his son's decision. After all, Tommy would make a kind and compassionate cop.
Meanwhile, Tommy is in love for the first time. His sweet relationship with Annalee Miller is almost too good to be true. Tommy begins seriously thinking about the far-off day when he might propose, but Annalee hasn’t been feeling well lately. Medical tests come to reveal the unthinkable.
While his girlfriend begins the fight of her life, Tommy is driven to learn more about the circumstances surrounding his birth and the grandfather he never knew. Secrets come to light that rock Tommy’s world, and he becomes determined to spend his future fighting crime and making his community safer. Or is this decision just his way of taking on the battle he cannot win—the one facing Annalee?
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Author/NetGalley, Atria Books and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
Kingsbury has done it again! She has brought her fans another hit with this installment in the Baxter Family books. Getting to revisit the Baxter Family again with this series, has been heartwarming. I love getting to see the Baxter grandkids all grown up! I feel like I am a part of their lives, watching them grow up from the beginning.
Seeing Tommy Baxter all grown up was so fun! But, seeing the decisions he has to make (my own son wants to be a police officer so I feel Reagan’s uncertainty and concern for her son! for his carreer path and ultimately, the love of his life, who’s health is in jeopardy, seeing him work through the emotions, the decisions, and how God was working in his life, really gripped me!
Kingsbury is the Queen of life changing fiction! There is not a book by her that I do not like! This one was another home run hit, and definitely felt the messages deep in my soul. Grab this one up today and take another trip to the lives of the Baxter Family. I can’t wait for the next!
