                                        (A NOVEL)

It was never Ira Croft's intention to be sixty one and single, yet here he is. Life has been good to him, but sometimes a nagging ache creeps into his heart when he least expects it. Has he missed the best part of why man was created? Emma Prater is forty six and unmarried. She is also the sole caregiver for her brother Rodney, a young man with Down syndrome. She sees herself as plain and quit thinking of marriage long ago - what man would want the package deal she has to offer? But Rodney knows a good man when he sees one and he knows more about what his sister has sacrificed than she realizes. When Ira places a personals ad in the county newspaper at the urging of a friend, Emma reads it aloud to her brother. Rodney knows intuitively that this is the man for Emma, but how can he get these two lonely souls together?
