Three years ago the Conklin siblings lost their parents in a tragic accident. The eldest son Adam is a budding academic at the nearby college. Middle of the pack are Briony a high school senior and Charlie a few years behind. Next follows the ‘littles’ – Darla who will start first grade and the twins Elizabeth and Felicia barely four.
In a small apartment on a strict budget Adam managed to keep his overflowing family together. He relied on their mother’s best friend and his mentor, Professor Helena Hunter, for moral support and occasional help until her recent death. She’s left the Conklins her large estate and a huge bucket of money. Adam would trade it all to have Helena back in their lives again.

Adam and Hutch’s romance unfolds naturally within the confines of this delightful heartwarming story. An easy, breezy good read, And Manny Makes Seven hit’s the spot.
