HIS BROTHER'S GIFT
When a plane crash makes pilot Will Rubens the guardian of his autistic nephew, Christopher, he's overwhelmed -- and not terribly receptive to the idea. Christopher's godmother, special-needs teacher Savanna, is willing to stay until both man and boy adjust. But when sparks between Savanna and the nearly decade-younger Will lead to a proposal, Savanna's ready to run. She's not convinced that he's thinking clearly -- about her, or the situation. Mary J. Forbes' His Brother's Gift (4.5) is unflinchingly honest and powerfully emotional. Both Will and Savanna are beautifully detailed and believably flawed, and Christopher will touch readers' hearts deeply.
