Abstract:

Jenny Harris always expected that she'd fall in love, get married, and have a baby--in that order. Now, very pregnant and not quite married, she actually doesn't mind that she and her live-in fiance, Dean, started their family earlier than planned. But then one night Dean runs out for cigarettes and just doesn't come back, and the very next day, Jenny goes into labor. She never anticipated single motherhood--but at least there's not much time to dwell on her broken heart. She learns how to do everything one-handed, makes friends in a mommy group, and gets to know a handsome, helpful neighbor with a knack for soothing babies. But Dean is never far from Jenny's thoughts or, it turns out, her doorstep, and in the end she must choose between the old life she thought she wanted and the new life she's been lucky to find.--From publisher description.
