Ben hit the skids, but now is trying to get his act together. He allows himself to go to the soup kitchen as a guest once a week because it’s the single thing left of his accomplishments.

Emily is a volunteer at the soup kitchen and attracted to Ben from day one. But she suppresses her feelings because he’s a guest. For months, she keeps her distance but one night, when she gives him a ride home, they end up in bed together.

That one encounter changes everything between them until Ben learns two things: she’s the daughter of the man who destroyed him. And she’s also pregnant.

Reader praise:

“Writers like Kathryn Shay are the reason why I buy romances. She has the unique talent of inviting a reader to get lost in the pages of her stories. One of the things that always draws me to any Kathryn Shay's books is the fact that her characters always feel real.”

“The dynamic of Emily being torn between her father and husband gives depth to an already well-written love story.”

“A TIME TO GIVE has all the stuff of a delicious Christmas love story.”
