A COAL MINER'S WIFE
Widow Annie McKee has wild twin boys, a junker of a car and a mailbox full of bills. She also has a secret: she has a crush on her late husband's best friend, Patrick. Annie has a plan to turn her life around: She's going to take her GED and get her family out of Heather's Hollow. What she doesn't know is that Patrick also likes her. The couple struggles with guilt over their feelings, and it seems like nothing will happen, until Patrick realizes that his life will not be complete without Annie and the boys in it. A Coal Miner's Wife (4), by Marin Thomas, is a sweet reminder that with hard work and some compromise, we can all achieve our hearts' desires.
