The Beach House
Coming HomeBook - 2017
After youve given your baby to strangers, what do you say when someone asks if you have children? Fourteen years ago, Melinda Campbell was fifteen and a half, pregnant and terrified. Desperate to protect her baby from a malicious grandfather and needed at home to take care of her own critically ill father, Melinda makes the most generous, heart-wrenching choice of all: adoption. Now shes living the successful life her father struggled to give her, but missing her daughter with a longing that shadows every joy. Jeremy Richmond knows the beach house the way a painter knows his canvas, intimately and focused on detail. His life revolves around his adopted daughter, Shiloh, the girl whos owned his heart from the moment he first held her as an infant. They were a picture-perfect family until Shiloh was diagnosed with pediatric lupus and Jeremys wife walked away. When Shiloh tells her father shes tired of fighting her illness and wants to meet her biological mother before its too late, Jeremy agrees to find a woman he has no desire to meet. From the moment Melinda and Jeremy come face-to-face, they realize their worlds will never be the same. Will the beach house that has harbored troubled hearts for decades prove to be the balm they need to heal?
