Forster has a lot of people to forgive if he's to move past his pain. As a single dad, right now he's solely concerned about caring for his two young daughters. Lynette, a journalist for a local rag, is also recovering from her past. In her case, it's divorce.

As a favor to their two best friends, Lynette and Forster go on a blind date, and life suddenly takes them on a new direction. Yet with kids, moms and pasts that make them leery of getting involved, will this new direction take them where they want to go?

THROUGH THE STORM is truly a class act. A purely romantic tale for the most part, there is a twist at the end that adds a touch of excitement. Warm and wonderful, this story explores the beauty of love a second time around. (Dec., 320 pp., $6.99)
