Independent single mom Claire Summers is doing her best to make lemonade out of the lemons life has handed her. Workaholic Keith Watson is interested only in the bottom line--until a letter from Claire's eleven-year-old daughter reaches his desk and changes everything.
As the executive assistant to a philanthropic businessman, Keith is used to fielding requests for donations. But the girl isn't asking for money. She wants help finding the long-lost son of a neighbor. As Keith reluctantly digs into this assignment in his usual results-oriented style, he has no idea how involved he and Claire will become--nor how unusual the results will actually be. Who could have guessed that a child's kindhearted request would bring love and hope to so many lives . . . including his own?
Through compelling characters and surprising plot twists, fan favorite Irene Hannon offers this tenderhearted story that demonstrates how life is like lilacs--the biggest blooms come only after the harshest winters.

One Perfect Spring by Irene Hannon is an excellent book.
I love how the whole book is centered around a letter written by a little girl. How one letter changed the life of six people/families.
One Perfect Spring talks about the issues of adoption, single parenting, workaholics, cancer and so many other life topics.
David and Keith are workaholics. David’s wife dies and he sees how much he has lost with always being at work and putting his family second. So he is changing and doesn’t want his employee to go down the same path as he did.
Maureen has cancer and it has made he want to get in touch with the son she gave up for adoption many years ago, but can’t find him. Little Haley takes it upon her self to write to a very wealthy man who helps people.
The outcome of this story is amazing. You will see how lives are changed, people fall in love, hearts start to thaw and people seeing what is really important in life. How God will help and is already working in your life.
Very good book. Highly recommended. A wonderful addition to your library.
