Publisher's Description

Ivy Darling can't have children of her own, and her husband Nick's resentment is forcing them apart. And while Ivy has the support and love of her large, close-knit family, Nick's family has never welcomed her into the fold.When the three children next door are abandoned by their mother, Ivy and Nick take them in for the night. One night becomes several, and suddenly Ivy and Nick find themselves foster parents to the only African-American kids in the town of Copper Cove, Maine. As Ivy grows more attached to the children, Nick refuses to accept their eclectic household as a permanent family. Just as Ivy begins to question whether or not she wants to save her emotionally barren marriage, Nick begins to discover how much Ivy and the children mean to him. But is his change of heart too little, too late?

Editorial Reviews

With no children of their own, Ivy Darling and her husband, Nick Mason, become foster parents to three neighbor children who were abandoned by their mother. But Nick’s refusal to forgive Ivy for their biological childlessness fractures her resolve to hold their marriage together amid the challenges they face as a foster family. As Ivy distances herself from him, possibly forever, Nick discovers the pain of withholding forgiveness and love, and realizes that he must act before it is too late. A compelling start to Gardner’s new, sure-to-please Darling family series, this is an honest and delicately navigated novel about the realities faced by foster families, particularly multiracial ones, as well as the issue of forgiveness in marriage. The Christian theme is conveyed through the use of open prayer, church involvement, and biblically based values. Gardner writes with raw insight as she creates a distinct voice for each character to express his or her emotions, which together result in a beautiful journey that is both heartbreaking and hopeful.

    For a book mainly about a family I had a hard time putting this down. I had to know what each of the characters was going through. I would have a hard time just taking in three children. I am proud of people who do this. I am looking forward to finding out more about this family in the next book. I received this book from bookfun.org for a fair and honest opinion.

    All Right Here is a great book. It revolves around a couple who can't have children. They take in three children who are abandoned next door. Family dynamics play an strong role in the book. Extended family are included in raising the children. The problems that arise and are solved along the way are the ones faced by any family. It is an enjoyable read.I can not wait for the next one in the series to come out.

    I received this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    All Right Here is a heartwarming tale about the Darling family. Ivy and Nick have been married for several years and their marriage is not as it seems. Ivy is unable to have children and her husband resents her for it and treats her coldly due to his resentment. Ivy feels responsible for not being able to give her husband children but tries to make the most of her situation. Then, one of their neighbors abandons her three children and the Darlings take them in for what they believe is only a few days. However, the few days turns into months as the neglectful mother is not easily found. While Ivy falls in love with the children, who have never had a stable life and good family, Nick refuses to become emotionally attached because they are not his children. As the children and Ivy grow closer, it becomes apparent to Nick that Ivys attitude grows colder towards him and for the first time, he realizes that he loves his wife and has room in his heart for the children. But, is it too late for Nick to rekindle the love of his wife and save his marriage? Will Nick be able to gain custody of the three children? I found this book to be very well-written and the characters, especially the children, to be likeable. This is a beautiful story about forgiveness and redemption.

    How do you define family? What makes a family - a family?

    In Carre Armstrong Gardners "All Right Here", the author explores this topic through the lens of fiction.

    Meet the Darlings...they aren't your typical family.

    I loves immersing myself in the lives of these characters. I cried with them, laughed with them and cheered for them.

    This book evoked so many emotions in me as I read...definitely will want to keep the tissues close at hand for this one!

    I cannot wait for more books in this series!!!

    I think fans of Karen Kingsbury (Baxter family) and Susan May Warren (Christiansen series) will want to check out this one!!!

    Ivy and Nick have been married for six year. Being unable to conceive children has put a strain on their marriage. Enter the three abandoned children from next door and a family is born.

    Ivy and Nick agree to care fro the children for a few days until other arrangements can be made. As days become weeks, weeks become months, Ivy and Nick realize that they are officially foster parents. But while Ivy's attachment to the children grows, the only thing growing on Nick is his attitude against Ivy and his marriage. It is not until Nick realizes that he may loose everything that he finally sees the light..

    This book brings to light the complex issues of infertility, foster parenting, interracial families, foster parenting and in-law issues. While the book does cover these well, there were parts that were somewhat unrealistic. While maybe because their abandonment from their mother, most children in the foster care system do not accept the situation as easily. Seeing the development of characters was interesting. As first Nick seemed a little shallow and uncaring but like most when faced with a situation, he came through in the end. I will await the next in the series in order to continue on the journey.

    I received this book through bookfun.org in exchange for my honest opinion. Thank you!
