Finding Our Forever by Brenda Novak

Art teacher Cora Kelly accepts a position at the New Horizons Boys Ranch for the sole purpose of getting to know the director, Aiyana Turner, who happens to be her biological mother. Cora hasn’t told her adopted family nor Aiyana of her discovery. She has her reasons but things start to get complicated when she and Elijah Turner, Aiyana’s adopted grown son, become “involved.”

It’s an interesting story as Cora tries to figure out who Aiyana is and why she gave her up when she later adopted so many others. Cora’s relationship with Elijah develops pretty naturally even though it creates some serious ethical issues for her. It was easy to judge her for keeping her secret so long but just as easy to understand why she delayed telling everyone. I liked how the issues related to adopted children seeking out their biological parents were addressed, presenting all sides of those affected.

The narrator did a wonder job of distinguishing the characters and I liked how she chose to handle the male roles. No over exaggerating but you could hear the shifts. I’ll definitely look for more by this narrator.

I enjoyed this story and the introduction to the series, as well as the small town and community of Silver Springs. While there wasn’t a lot of drama, there were lots of realistic issues and dilemmas to keep me hooked. I’m looking forward to continuing the series.

  1. I’ve really enjoyed this series about Silver Springs. One of the things I enjoy most about Brenda Novak is how her contemporary romance has plot and somewhat realistic personal issues for the characters. Anne – Books of My Heart

  2. I have never read Novak before, but this sounds interesting. I added it to my Goodreads TBR, so that I don’t forget the title. I have a lot of other books to get through, but I don’t want to forget it. It sounds too good to pass by.
