Some loves are harder than others.
Mercy lost her sister two years ago, leaving a baby and an overwhelmed father. Filling the need, Mercy’s mother, Hope, stepped up to care for the baby.
The only problem with her ‘caring’ is that instead of letting the child be herself, Hope was trying to make her a carbon copy of Mercy. Only trouble was, The little girl, now three years old, hates her dance classes. Mercy tries to intervene and convince Clay that forcing his daughter in this matter is a bad idea.
But Hope insists that the pagentries continue. She had made Mercy sparkle, and she would do the same for Dilly.
Mercy’s sister had given Clay a bad opinion of Mercy. Over time he discovers how wrong his opinion is. In fact, he falls in in love with her, knowing all too well such a path would lead to disaster.
Clay is convinced Mercy will eventually return to Los Angeles and resume being an actress, leaving him and his daughter, both of which have fallen in love with Mercy, with broken hearts. Thus, he tries his hardest to stay away from her.
The emotions in this story are poignant and strong. And life gives them unexpected twists.
While at times you might be frustrated with their behaviors, the underlying love they both work so hard to ignore, will not be silenced.
I enjoyed this love story very much: 5 stars.
