A sudden tragedy leaves Tam a widow, one who finds herself in charge of a cousin's five-year-old daughter and facing a decision of whether to go through with her pending adoption of a young boy in China. The accident that kills Tam's husband, Tony, and his cousin Mia haunts her days, as she struggles with the idea of raising two young children on her own. A heartfelt story but with a predictable ending, the novel keeps your attention, especially as it takes you through the complex process of going through with an adoption from China.
