When her first grandson is born and named for her late husband, Emily Martin finds herself drawn out of grieving and back into life. The process is helped along by a series of letters she finds written by Andrew during the final months of his life. Through those letters, we see Emily and Andrew's marriage unfold, with its all its joys and challenges. Drawing upon those experiences, Emily is able to work through new challenges in her present life and the lives of her children and even take the first steps toward a new beginning that is waiting for her.
Once again Stella MacLean impressed me with how effortlessly she could weave past and present events together to create a compelling story. This book is rich with emotional truth that I could relate to my own life. Though it deals with a heart-wrenching subject, the story was very uplifting with lots of surprises, funny moments and a wonderful ending. Baby In Her Arms shows how much effort and courage and sacrifice can go into creating a "happily ever after", yet the sweet rewards are well worth it!

She finds solace in the letters Andrew wrote her before he died. She also finds their good neighbor Sam Bannister comforting too. Soon after she becomes a grandmother, Emily and Sam fall in love, as she realizes her children are doing okay and do not need her to live their lives.
This engaging romance is a warm entertaining contemporary with a strong cast. Emily and Sam are likable protagonists who fall in love at a time neither feels right due to the ghost that ties them together. Although dead for over a year, Andrew is a complete character as readers get to know him indirectly through his letters to his beloved wife and through the memories of her and Sam, and somewhat her children. Although her adult children ignore their mom's needs, Stella MacLean provides an interesting character driven second chance at love.
