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.
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.
