    One Perfect Spring

      First edition published in 2014 by Revell
      Encore Edition published in 2019 by Irene Hannon

      Who could guess that a little girl’s simple, heartfelt letter would touch so many lives—or reap so many blessings?

      Eleven-year-old Haley Summers is determined to give her ailing neighbor the sixtieth birthday present she most wants—a reunion with the child she gave up for adoption more than two decades ago. And she figures a local business executive with philanthropic leanings is just the man to help her make that happen.

      But Haley’s mother, Claire, isn’t eager to cooperate with her daughter’s scheme—nor with Keith Watson, the executive assistant who’s been handed the project. She’s too busy trying to make lemonade out of the lemons life has handed her.

      Keith isn’t thrilled with the assignment, either. It stirs up too many demons from his own past and distracts him from his all-important job.

      Yet as he tackles the project, and as his life intertwines with Claire’s, Haley’s kindhearted request begins to have a ripple effect that brings hope and love to countless lives—including his own.
