Book Review: "One Perfect Spring" by Irene Hannon

It's time for me to post another book review for Revell Books.  I was so excited when I received the e-mail where I could request Irene Hannon's "One Perfect Spring."  I have absolutely loved every single book of Ms. Hannon's that I have read and "One Perfect Spring" certainly did not disappoint.

The story starts with a philanthropic organization receiving a letter from a young girl wanting help finding a child that her next door neighbor had placed for adoption when the child was born.  The young girl wanted help so that she could provide the information to her neighbor as a gift for her neighbors birthday.

The storyline is based around the lives of four main characters, all who are single, two because they have never married, one because of a divorce and one because of the death of their spouse.  Seeing how all four of these individuals come to rely on each other and on God through this story is just amazing and incredible.

The character, Keith, that was assigned the task of tracking down the neighbor's son, has his reasons for not wanting to follow through, but those reasons are not revealed until later on in the book.  Keith's boss cannot understand why he is having such a difficult time wanting to do the task.  He just sees so much of himself in Keith and wants Keith to see that there is more to life than being a workaholic.

Claire, the single mom to the young girl who wrote the letter, is very independent due to her divorce and is trying everything she can to keep her heart guarded and be independent.

I read this book in a couple of days because I just could not put it down!  It was that good!!!!!  You can read an excerpt here.  You can also see discussion questions here.  (But, beware, there are spoilers if you look at the discussion questions!)

I highly recommend all of Irene Hannon's books and you can see a list of all of her books on her website, which you can find at http://www.irenehannon.com/.

I hope you'll take some time and read this book and that you'll enjoy it as much as I did!
