"Simmons balances the sadness of Alzheimer's with the heartwarming bonds of family and friendship, and the combination is sure to tug at readers' heartstrings." —Publishers Weekly
Second in the Family Is Forever series of emotional, poignant, romantic women's fiction from acclaimed author Pat Simmons.
Rachel Knicely has put her own life on hold for six months to take care of her great aunt, who has Alzheimer's. Putting her aunt first was an easy decision—accepting that Aunt Tweet is nearing the end of her battle is far more difficult.
Nicholas Adams' ministry is bringing comfort to those who are sick and homebound. He responds to a request for help for an ailing woman but when he meets Aunt Tweet, he realizes Rachel—overcome with grief—is the one who needs support the most. Nick is committed to helping Rachel, but more than that, he's charmed by and attracted to her. The timing couldn't be worse. Just when the moment seems perfect to profess his love, Rachel receives devastating news that brings both a crisis of faith and roadblocks to their budding relationship that neither could have anticipated.
