ISBN 9780062105653

On their way to Atlanta for school, single mother Shandi Pierce, her brilliant three year old son Natty and her best buddy Walcott stop at a Circle K in Georgia when an armed robbery occurs. One year ago, William Ashe’s world shattered in a car crash that left him a widower with no children as his wife and their child died; but at that same convenience store, he bravely walks between the gunman and Natty. Shandi thinks how in seconds a courageous stranger has become her beloved god and he finds himself living for the first time since the tragedy.

Although she wants more from her second “miracle” relationship, Shandi settles for now as friends with William. However, as William works through his grief, their respective BFFs and her divorced parents oppose their friendship as not being good for either of them or Natty.

This charming whimsical relationship drama contains a strong cast as the prime players are fully developed caring but flawed people struggling with how they truly feel. Joshilyn Jackson provides her readers with a poignant twisting tale as love proves confusing especially when it is Someone Else's Love Story.
