After betrayal and tragedy rip apart two families, the wake of anger and pain threatens to destroy them all.
Aleen Riddick’s marriage falls apart when her daughter, eighteen-year-old Sunny, loses her beloved boyfriend in a tragic accident. Struggling with how to cope, mother and daughter look to the dead boy’s father, grief-stricken Ted Hammand, to help them heal and redefine life.
When shocking developments force them to confront those who have deceived them, Aleen, Ted, and Sunny must decide if forgiveness will drive them back to the pain of the past or forward to a future of possibilities. Love Reconsidered is about families—their grief, guilt, compassion, love, forgiveness, and hope.
An award-winning page-turning contemporary tale of how three memorable characters seek to rebuild their lives after betrayal and tragedy with the help of new relationships, loyal corgi dogs, home-cooked meals, and the ritual of football Sundays.
