Jerry McKenzie is shocked when he discovers that he is now the only living relative of an eight year old boy that he has never met, His cousins whom he has not seen in many years named him guardian of their son William. Jerry’s first instinct is to refuse. He is a temperamental artist. He lives in the middle of nowhere because he craves solitude. There is no way he would make a good parent. However when he gets a good look at William he finds he can’t turn him away. He agrees to let the boy live with him temporarily but he knows he will never make a good father.

David Lowenberger is a teacher who loves his job and cares immensely for his students. When he learns that he is going to have a new student in the middle of the year, he decides to meet his new student’s guardian. David likes William from the moment he meets him but it is his guardian that really holds David’s interest. The attraction he feels for Jerry blows him away.


David is saddened to learn that Jerry plans to give William away. He is determined to prove to Jerry that he has what it takes to be a loving parent. David can’t help but hope that there might be room for him in Jerry’s heart as well.


What I enjoyed most about this story is the powerful and realistic relationships that are formed between the characters. I really enjoyed following Jerry, David and William’s journey as they slowly become a family. William is a sweet boy who desperately needs someone to love and care for him. The story of how Jerry and William come to love and trust one another is very touching. The romance between David and Jerry is the other integral part of the plot. They are very passionate and I admired their courage as they work to overcome their fears and insecurities. Their emotions felt very genuine to me. I found myself hoping that they would find a way to make their relationship work.  GOOD TO KNOW by D.W. Marchwell is a sweet and stirring contemporary romance novel that left me feeling good.
