January 9, 2007
Rating: 5 Cups
Molly Shaeffer, corporate lawyer, returns home to care for her little niece, Sara, after her sister, Kim, is involved in a terrible car accident.
Jason Elliot, veterinarian, and Molly’s ex-boyfriend, happens to live next door to Kim and still has Molly under his skin.
Molly has grown much since she left home for law school. No longer the teenager, she is now a powerful lawyer who returns home to offer assistance to her sister and little niece for three weeks. A snowstorm was the least of her worries when she arrived late only to meet with ex-boyfriend, Jason. After six long years, Jason still keeps the engagement ring intended for Molly. Just one glimpse and he can tell his Molly has really changed into a hotshot lawyer. She was the girl who had stolen his heart, and left it broken. Still he would like no one other than her to share a life, a home, forever. With three weeks in his favor, Jason hopes this time to win his lady’s heart, to keep her around.
Almost a Family is one of those feel good stories that hook the reader and leaves an unforgettable emotional sensation to the heart. The characters of Molly, Jason, even Kim and little Sara are exceptionally well cast. The past and present relationship that spins around Jason and Molly makes the reader get a better knowledge of the situation at hand. Ms. Alward weaves an extraordinary story that leaves the reader wonderfully satisfied. This poignant tale is so believably real, even down to Kim’s car accident that the characters almost leap from this wonderful read that garnishes a 5-cup rating.
