All Right Here by Carre Armstrong Gardner

Ivy Darling can't have children of her own, and her husband Nick's resentment is forcing them apart. And while Ivy has the support and love of her large, close-knit family, Nick's family has never welcomed her into the fold.

When the three children next door are abandoned by their mother, Ivy and Nick take them in for the night. One night becomes several, and suddenly Ivy and Nick find themselves foster parents to the only African-American kids in the town of Copper Cove, Maine. As Ivy grows more attached to the children, Nick refuses to accept their eclectic household as a permanent family. Just as Ivy begins to question whether or not she wants to save her emotionally barren marriage, Nick begins to discover how much Ivy and the children mean to him. But is his change of heart too little, too late?

All Right Here wonderfully opens Carre Armstrong Gardner’s Darling Family series. Filled with a great and diverse cast of characters, covering a complex variety of situations and emotions, the story is beautifully and dramatically told and kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. I really enjoyed All Right Here and cannot wait to come back to the Darlings in future novels. I would certainly recommend this novel for fans of contemporary fiction - it’s an all-around entertaining and uplifting read.

Thanks to Tyndale House and NetGalley, I received a copy of All Right Here and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
