About the Book:
There are some mistakes we make that we will regret for the rest of our lives. For Christian, it was the day he betrayed Elizabeth.

Christian Davison has a plan for his life. He is determined to become an attorney and to one day take his place as partner in his father’s law firm. Nothing will stand in his way, not even Elizabeth Ayers and their unborn child.

After Christian cuts her from his life, Elizabeth spends the next five years struggling to provide for her daughter and willing to sacrifice anything to give her child a safe, comfortable life.

For five years, Christian has regretted the day he walked away from his family and will do anything to win them back just as Elizabeth will do anything to protect her daughter from the certain heartache she believes Christian will bring upon them.

When Christian wrestles his way into their lives, Elizabeth is faced with asking herself if it is possible to forgive someone when they’ve committed the unforgiveable and if it is possible to find a love after it has been buried in years of hate. Or are there some wounds that go so deep they can never heal?

They say everyone deserves a second chance.

Elizabeth and Christian are a young couple, bound to finish law school, and are in love.  That is until Elizabeth becomes pregnant and Christian no longer wants anything to do with her.  Heart-broken, Elizabeth drops out of school and starts to raises her daughter Lizzie.  Five years pass and Christian can only think about the family he turned his back on. Would they even want him in their lives now?  After becoming an established attorney, Christian moves from New York and runs into his daughter only to be captured by her.  His goal: to win his family back over.

 I was captured in the first few pages by this book.  The way Lichtenhan writes the characters Elizabeth, Christian, and Lizzie your heart is consumed by their lives and your feel everything that they feel.  You root for Elizabeth for being so strong that she is willing to raise Lizzie by herself if she needed to.  You root for Christian when he comes to his sense and strives to reunite with his family.  And you just full-heartily love Lizzie.  I zoomed through this book within days and I highly recommend it to anyone who would like to read a love story. ~BookWhisperer Reviewer MC~
