Overview

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author comes a story of forgiveness that's filled with "assurance, humor and compassion" and is for every woman who has ever loved-and never forgotten (Luanne Rice, New York Times bestselling author).

Michelle Turner thought she lost everything at seventeen. Her father, a Hollywood legend, had finally summoned her to his Montana ranch. But when he learned of her affair with Sam McPhee, a hired hand, he had Sam fired and destroyed his family. Michelle, pregnant and alone, fled to Seattle.

Now a successful advertising exec, Michelle is safe-safe from love, safe from hurt. But her son is lost to her, a troubled teen on the verge of self-destruction, a boy who blames her for the absence of his father and grandfather. And then her father calls to tell her he is dying. He has only one chance to live-if she will donate a kidney to save him.

For her sick father, she must bridge the gulf that distance and time have widened. For her son, she must find the miracle that will pull him away from the abyss that threatens his future. And for Sam, the man who left her years ago, she must face all the secrets of the past and find a way to heal the scars and love again.

Seventeen years ago, Michele Turner fled Crystal City, Montana, vowing never to return. Michele was in the small town for just a few months to live with her father, former Hollywood star Gavin Slade following the death of her mother. She fell under the hypnotic spell of rodeo star Sam McPhee, became pregnant, and wound up in Seattle by herself raising a boy. However, over the years, Michele became a full partner in a successful advertising agency.

The only reason she returns to Crystal City is because her father needs a kidney transplant to live and she plans to be the donor. When Michele sees Sam for the first time in all these years, she knows she still loves him. Sam was not ready to settle down then as the rodeo beckoned and has never met his troubled teenage son Cody. Now the retired champion wonders if he chose the wrong path all those years ago. He now realizes he has a second chance to rectify matters.

Susan Wiggs is the recipient of numerous awards especially for her fabulous historical romances. Her current tale THE YOU I NEVER KNEW is a powerful contemporary tale that shows the depth of talent this best-selling author has. The story line is filled with angst as the four key charcaters struggle with life, relationships and love.

Very good read! I couldn't stop reading. The more I read, the more interesting the book was. I enjoyed it very much!

Pretty predictable story overall. I read it quickly, but mostly because there just wasn't much to sink your teeth into. I have read others of hers that were better. If you found this at a used bookstore or in a library I'd say go for it. If you purchased it new I'd say skip it.

The You I Never Knew is a story about a single mom and her son and estranged father. She goes back to help her father and runs into her sons father. Susan Wiggs' books are usually like a fairy tale where there is always a happy ending and this book is no exception.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. I really felt connected to the heroine, and I liked the history she had with the hero. The heroine's relationship with her son fell a little flat. I had the feeling sometimes that Susan Wiggs was trying to do too much, between the heroine's father, her son, the father's sickness, etc., but I think she twined it all into a good plot.

Susan Wiggs has the ability to write love stories with obstacles along the way. Her characters aren't perfect and their paths to happiness aren't expected. But her wonderful dialogue and human qualities, make the reader remember what it's like to fall in love. All her series are great works of art!

This is one of my favorite Wiggs' books. She develops the characters enough so that you feel you know them and relate to their plights. They all have a secret they are holding back and discovering all of them, while reading a very interesting story keeps you wanting more. And of course, the mystery of each one keeps you guessing. All the characters will endear you to their hearts and have you have you reading on to hopefully find that at the end, happiness will reign. It's not so different from other romantic novels, but does not focus on sex alone. There is storyline, a different type of setting, characters and enough sexual description but it's not overdone or repetitive.

This was the second book I have read by Susan Wiggs and my only problem with the book was it ended. It was a well written story about a love that really has never died. I read this book in 2 days. It was very hard to put the book down. Susan did a great job and developing the charatures and making you feel like you knew each person in the story. Great book!
