It seemed ideal—Kirk Chandler loves kids and Valerie Sims has twin boys, but the road to their relationship is anything but smooth. Kirk is an advocate for keeping troubled kids at home, and Valerie is a judge placing them in the system. While their professional lives are out of sync, on a romantic level they're in tune—until they clash over one special teenager. Tara Taylor Quinn's FOR THE CHILDREN (3) is an emotional story about parents and children finding their way through rough times. However, readers may wonder if Valerie could have handled certain situations better.
