One of beloved author Debbie Macomber's classic novels, this is a heartwarming story of hope and possibility.

Skye Garvin treasures her work as a volunteer in the pediatric ward of the local hospital. Bringing even a small amount of joy to a suffering child—whether through her playful attitude or her gift for music—is a blessing that Skye cherishes. But due to overcrowding, her favorite young patient's new roommate is an adult—a man who catches Skye completely off guard. Despite his gruff exterior, Skye is compelled to help the unnerving man. But the old scars of personal tragedy—and a fundamental difference of faith—might undermine Skye's chances at a happy ending.

Jordan Kiley can't imagine anything more frustrating than his current situation. A car accident has left him confined to a hospital bed, his arm painfully pinned in traction. He can't even feed himself. But when he first lays eyes on the beautiful volunteer, he knows there are far greater challenges awaiting him. Astutely, he senses that Skye's sparkling wit hides a heart that has been unbearably broken. And Jordan has deep secrets of his own. Can he convince Skye that she is worthy of love—and earn her heart in the process?
BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Debbie Macomber's Last One Home.

Excerpts-
  • From the book Chapter One

    Slowly, silently, the heavy fog began to rise. The brisk offshore breeze set the thick moisture stirring around the Golden Gate Bridge. Gradually the sun broke through the low-lying vapor to display the wonders of the beautiful city of St. Francis.

    Releasing a sigh of appreciation for the natural beauty around her, Skye Garvin leisurely strolled toward the hospital. A freshness seemed to flow through her. Usually by the end of the day the demands of teaching a classroom full of enthusiastic kindergartners left her physically and mentally drained. But even knowing she would be volunteering several hours at the hospital this afternoon couldn't dampen this new exuberance. The fresh air and brilliant sunlight brought a bounce to her step, and she hummed a catchy tune.

    Once on the children's ward she paused to resecure the thick, honey-colored chignon the brisk wind had ruffled about her oval face. Her bright blue eyes sparkled, and her cheeks were whipped a rosy hue.

    "You're here at last." Sally Avery, the head pediatric nurse, smiled in greeting. "Billy's been waiting impatiently all afternoon. I think he's ready to collect on his bet."

    "Skye pulled a wry face. "Oh, dear, I was afraid of that."

    The corners of Sally's mouth curved upward. "You realize you're hopeless, don't you? Anyone crazy enough to race that child down the corridor in a wheelchair deserves what she gets."

    Skye disguised her own amusement. "Kindly remove that snicker, Sally Avery. How was I to know Billy would practice day and night? You're the one who told me he wouldn't even sit in the wheelchair, and then on the day of the race he takes off like Parnelli Jones."

    Sally laughed, but her eyes grew serious. "All kidding aside, thank you. I don't know if Billy would ever have voluntarily accepted the wheelchair if it hadn't been for you."

    "Oh, nonsense, he just needed a little subtle encouragement," she said, refusing the credit. "I'd better go see the little rascal and discover my forfeit."

    "While you're there, see if you can do anything to cheer up his new roommate."

    "I'll do what I can." Skye paused, thinking she'd detected a gleam of mischief in Sally's expression. "I'll be back with Billy in a few minutes." She flashed a quick smile to the short brunette, who had been her good friend for several years. Skye and Sally were strikingly different in looks, but not temperament. Sally, with her short, stylish curls and slightly plump build, was perpetually dieting, while Skye, tall and slender, never needed to worry about her weight. But both were the impulsive, fun-loving type.

    "Good afternoon, Sprout," Skye greeted her favorite ten-year-old.

    "Hello, Skye!" Billy's young face lit up with pathetic eagerness. "You haven't forgotten our bet, have you?"

    "I doubt that you would let me," Skye said a little drily.

    "You said I could choose anything I wanted."

    "Within reason," she added quickly, wondering how she could have been so rash.

    "We'd better whisper," Billy warned, and gestured to the hospital bed beside his. The heavy white curtain surrounding the area prevented her from looking at his new roommate. "He's asleep, I think."

    "Then let's go before we wake him," Skye whispered.

    "I know what I want for my prize," Billy said loudly, forgetting his own advice in his enthusiasm.

    An impatient oath came from the unknown occupant of the room.

    "Oops, sorry, Mr. Kiley," Billy apologized.

    "Either be quiet or get out of here." The hard voice breathed heavily in irritation.
