Description: In a story that begins with an engagement and ends with a wedding, Margaret Jacobsen is a worthy heroine. About to start her dream job, Maggie is flying high... until she isn't. When her life changes in an instant, during the months of rehabilitation that follow, she has no choice but to start living the life she has been given, not the one she was anticipating.

Both poignant and funny, this is a captivating story with appealing characters and a heart-warming message of hope amidst adversity.
