Sherryl Woods captures a community’s heartfelt fight to preserve the innocence of childhood When bullying threatens to destroy a teen’s life, painful memories resurface for dedicated high school teacher Laura Reed and pediatrician J. C. Fullerton. With the support of the Sweet Magnolias, they bring the town together to ensure that a promising student’s future isn’t ruined. And to establish once and for all that bullying has no place in Serenity, South Carolina. Both J.C.’s and Laura’s passion for the cause is deeply personal, and their growing feelings for each other are just as strong. But with so many secret hurts to overcome, can these two vulnerable lovers find the strength to believe in happily ever after?
For starters I love the cover artwork that Sherryl Woods uses on her books they always look so beautiful. This one is one of my favorites. This is the story of teacher Laura Reed and Pediatrician J.C. Fullerton and more than them it’s the story of Misty Davidson. When Misty is having trouble dealing with a group of popular kids at school she tries everything to get out of school from going to her teacher to get out of advanced English to her Doctor to get excused from school permanently. Both Laura and C.J. have their own reasons for standing up to this bullying situation. They rally to get the school to do what is right and prove there is a no tolerance for bullying. It was a great story that touches on something that has gone on for years in schools. I was so proud at the end of Misty and how she handled the bullying! What a great book to a great series!
