Available as an e-book for the first time, New York Times bestselling author Barbara Delinsky’s classic novel, Commitments, about the ties that bind and the love that remains.
Sabrina Stone is struggling to be a good mother and to do what’s best for her young, handicapped son. When she meets investigative reporter Derek McGill, who’s doing a feature story about special-needs children, Sabrina is immediately struck by his tenderness toward Nicky…and an attraction between her and Derek that cannot be denied. Three months after their fateful first visit, Sabrina learns that Derek has been convicted of murder. He swears he’s innocent, but Derek ends up in prison all the same.
Meanwhile, Sabrina’s marriage is on the rocks. Her husband, Nicholas, is in denial about their child’s diagnosis—and is unable to comfort Sabrina in any meaningful way. Against her better judgment, Sabrina reaches out to the one person who seems to understand her: Derek. But how far will Sabrina go to maintain a connection with a man behind bars? As their relationship escalates—and she experiences a passion she has never known—Sabrina finds herself willing to do whatever it takes to save Derek…and herself. But is their commitment worth the risk?

Listened to this as an abridged audio. The narrator–as always–Joyce Bean did a superb job! She always makes books better!
An enjoyable listen/story. Would have like a little more of the hero/heroine emotional and physical backstory to explain their choices and attraction.
Good book. Barbara Delinsky is very good with character development and always tells a good story.
