Family Does Matter

A young widower, Morgan Masterson, struggles to make a better life for his daughter, Maddie. When he almost runs over Bonnie Blakley, the new activities director for the Elmvale Nursing Home, he has no idea she’ll become so important to his little girl.

Bonnie has been brought up through the foster care system. She longs for independence from the existence of abuse and punishment she has come from, but yet, she longs to belong to a real family.

When Bonnie’s foster mother, Mrs. Grimes, shows up at the nursing home, Bonnie is threatened and all those horrible memories come flooding back. Morgan wants her to baby-sit for Maddie, but Bonnie fights against it. When she finally agrees, her worst fears are realized.

Morgan and Maddie want Bonnie in their lives but it takes an old woman who claims she knows Bonnie to set things right.

This uplifting story about the bonds of family and love gives the reader a true sense of understanding that a hurtful past can be left behind. Ms. Sellwood paints believable characters in everyday situations. Nice job, Georgina.

Family Matter may be purchased here:  Prism Book Group, and other fine ebook sellers.

As another "Bonnie," I'm happy to see the name becoming popular again. And the story line of people dealing with stress and problems is what romances must weather in real life. Congratulations. Bonnie McCune, author, "Heart-Strong"
