Appalachian poet and author Mary O’Dell, pens her first women’s fiction novel.
When Reynolds Ernst, cynical and damaged of heart, returns to the little community of his birth after thirty years' knocking about, little does he know that he's about to rediscover the love of his life - only to be faced with the prospect of losing her forever. This is the story of how two people search for, and find, healing and peace in the midst of loss. How they come to believe with all their hearts that love and family are worth the risk.
“The author tells a story about difficult yet universal subjects with both realism and grace.” ~Amazon Review
“I wept through this entire book. From moment one, it becomes clear to the reader what is going to happen and it was only the incredibly beautiful way Mary O’Dell wrote this touching, poignant tale that kept me reading… I highly, highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to be absorbed into a world that will leave them changed… Incredibly good read.” ~Happily Ever After Review
“…a tender romance, a story of love reclaimed late in life…a story of familial love and forgiveness.” ~Sherry Chandler, Poet
