Families come in many configurations, and every one is unique, made up of the personalities of each member. But the love that connects families is universal. Whether it is the love of parents for their children, the love between a husband and wife, the love between siblings, a love that transcends generations, or even the love for a family member never met, the family ties that bind us are the strongest and deepest emotional connections we experience. Families influence a person’s development, how they treat others, and how they view life. In The Gift of Love, eight exceptional writers offer a variety of unique perspectives on what family love means and how it impacts our lives in ways profound and often surprising.
HelenKay’s Story: Second Time Around – Serena Davis was over Heath Sanders. He spent high school ignoring her. Fine. She was a grown woman now. In fact, she barely noticed when Heath moved back to town with his son…well, maybe she noticed a little. After all, she wasn’t dead. Any woman would notice. But when Heath’s son ends up in her English class and Heath starts coming up for all sorts of reasons to talk with her, Serena knows her anti-Heath vow is in serious danger of being broken.
