About the Book

"Jacqueline Laurent paints a picture with great detail, until you find you don't want to put the book down "
-Barbara Morris, Author and Screenwriter

When Sarah Klein was born, there was no one who told her how beautiful she was, how her blond hair already had the tiniest little curls, and how she crinkled her mouth as if she wanted to tell you something really important.

After Bernice Stetson abandoned her newborn baby Sarah, authorities placed the little girl in an institution. When Sarah was two years old, Ellen and Jeff Jansen became Sarah's foster parents and took her in their home and their hearts. For eight years, Sarah lived an idyllic life.

Suddenly, an unexpected letter arrives, and Sarah's life spins into turmoil. Who will win the heartwrenching battle that will decide Sarah's fate? Her loving foster parents? Her erratic birth mother? Or Bill Black, the egocentric director who has power of attorney?
