As I said in my review of Faith in Every Footstep by Wesley Banks (see my review here) this is one author who can and does tug at your heartstrings. You can feel the emotions of the characters as life takes them on a sometimes bumpy ride. I needed my tissue box again with this one-sometimes from sadness--sometimes in happiness. I read it in one sitting--I just could not put it down.
Ben Wilder is literally running from his past--or to remember it. Casey is a single Mom afraid to date because of her daughter. They were made for each other and Emma (Casey's daughter)really likes Ben. He has no idea why there is something about Emma that seems familiar--you will have to read this book to find out why!
About the Book: (from Amazon)
When Ben Wilder is given a second chance he focuses on the one thing he's always been good at: running. After walking on to the University of Florida Track and Field team he begins to quickly move up the national rankings, paving a path towards the NCAA Championships. Everything is going the way he planned, until the day he bumps into Casey Taylor.
New to Gainesville, and focused on her first year out of medical school, Casey is initially hesitant to let Ben into her life. The truth is she's worried about letting a guy near the one thing she loves most: her daughter, Emma. After one fun and fateful night Casey can no longer bury her feelings behind these excuses, and takes a chance on a guy she is slowly falling for.
Casey's relationship with Ben starts to gradually build into a love that she has never felt before. But more importantly, Emma has taken a particular liking to Ben. As they all spend more time together Ben is forced to confront painful memories when he starts to notice something hauntingly familiar about Emma.
A local journalist soon uncovers the secret of Ben's past their lives begin to converge on a single promise that Ben Wilder has long since made: to never give up...no matter what.
