When Aleen Riddick’s marriage falls apart after her eighteen-year-old daughter, Sunny, loses her beloved boyfriend in a tragic accident, they look to the dead boy’s father, grief-stricken Ted Hammand, to help them heal and redefine life. When shocking developments force them to confront those who deceived them, Aleen, Ted, and Sunny must decide if forgiveness will drive them back to the pain of the past or forward to a future of possibilities. Love Reconsidered is about families―their grief, guilt, compassion, love, forgiveness, and hope.
Phyllis J. Piano spent more than thirty years as an award-winning corporate communications expert for some of the world’s largest companies. She has somehow managed to maintain her sense of humor, love of writing, and passion for life and the people she loves and cares about throughout it all. A world traveler, Piano has since left the corporate world and fallen back into the arms of her own first love: writing. She and her husband split their time between California, England, and the Midwest. When she is not packing a bag, making artisan sourdough bread, or cooking with lots of garlic, Piano is working on her next novel. Her first book, Hostile Takeover: A Love Story, was published in October, 2016. Love Reconsidered, her second novel, was published in August, 2017.
This is one of those reads, that left me feeling very content. It was filled with wonderful and important insights on love, forgiveness and grief. It is one of those reads that I will not soon forget.
