Editorial Reviews

“Crosby’s storytelling is straightforward and uncomplicated, and the characters’ conversations feel consistently lifelike and authentic. A sweet novel that aims to remind readers that the best moments in life may sometimes be the most ordinary.”

Kirkus Reviews

“In this wonderful book, we learn and see how Tracy Briggs and her hearing-impaired young son are doing. Tracy is trying to step up to the plate and be the best and responsible Mom. Is there romance in Tracy’s future? What could prevent Tracy from the happiness she deserves? There are some intriguing new characters and some wonderful friends from the first book. Although this could be read as a stand-alone, I thing that reading the first book would enhance the experience.”
