You too will fall in love with Claire and Whitaker and the journey they go on together. Whitaker is funny and instantly lovable. He is struggling with failure; recently divorced, unable to write a follow up to his best selling novel, turned film after 10 years. He feels like he is washed up. He then meets widow Claire, who is also struggling with moving on from losing her husband. Claire begs Whitaker to help her finish a novel started by her deceased husband and together they both help each other heal This book is a perfect example that everything happens for a reason. I absolutely loved the way the story unfolded. It was absolutely beautiful and my eyes were definitely not dry at the end.
Boo Walker you are an amazing writer and beautiful story teller. Thank you.

Claire was widowed when her architect husband Mark was killed in a car accident. He mentioned he was bringing someone home to supper but she never found out who that was. When she is packing up her house three years after Mark’s death, she finds three comprehension books filled with his writing. The story of a foster child Orlando and a man that befriends him. Claire tries to convince local writer, and one-hit-wonder, Whitaker to polish the story and finish it. But he is in such a depressed state, can he even contemplate this task and do it justice?
I read Boo Walker’s The Singing Trees months ago and loved it. I loved this story so much, I was totally invested in the relationship between Claire and Whitaker, how Mark came up with the story and the slump that both Claire and Whitaker found themselves in. This is such a gorgeous read.
