LaVyrle Spencer explores the true meaning of unconditional love in this powerful New York Times bestseller.

High school principal Tom Gardner feels a sense of shock when he sees Kent Arens, a new transfer student. With one glance, Tom can see that this teenager is the son he never knew he had-the result of a one-night stand on the eve of his wedding years before, now grown into an intelligent, athletic, and polite young man. But the boy's presence has a devastating effect on Tom's family.

As the Gardners careen toward disaster, they test the foundation of trust and respect that their family was built on-and learn that love leaves no choice but forgiveness.
