A New York Times Bestselling Author

David Harwood’s life is in free fall. After his wife’s death and the collapse of his newspaper, he uproots his nine-year-old son and moves back to his childhood home in Promise Falls, New York. When David’s mother asks him to check on a cousin still struggling a year after a devastating miscarriage, he uncovers a family secret of epic proportions: Marla has been secretly raising a baby she claims was a gift from an “angel” left on her porch.
