Adam and Elijah seem to have worked things out, and are creating a life together. Elijah is also in the process of trying to adopt Kollin.
However, everything changes when Adam's birth mother calls him at the Home for Hope center - and things start to go downhill from there. Adam has always come across as sensitive, but knows what he wants... but this all changes with the arrival of Jessica in his life.
Adam pushes everyone away, and seems to start going down a depressive and complete downward spiral, and although he seems to know he is doing it, he has no idea how to stop it and start getting his life in order again.
The one person growing up, who accepted Adam totally, was his grandfather, who he stayed with until he was taken ill, and from here Adam was pushed from pillar to post until he reached the Wright family, with whom he thinks of as mum and dad.
When his grandfather dies, and leaves him a bequest, this is when his birth mother Jessica makes an appearance, and not content with driving Adam to the edge of insanity, she is also trying to get him to sign forms forfeiting his bequest.
This story will keep you turning the pages until you reach the end. At times you will want to reach it and give Adam a slap, but at others you want to reach in and give him a hug. Elijah I really felt sorry for, he was really trying to help Adam, but kept having it thrown back in his face all the time, but had to try and hide his heartbreak from Kollin.
You need to read book 1 first (Redeeming Hope), before you read this one, but you won't be disappointed.
