Overview

From the USA TODAY bestselling author of LONG TIME COMING and MEANT TO BE, both 4.5-star Romantic Times Top Picks!

You can't run away from your past. But sometimes, it's worth a try.

Sarah Landers' parents were killed in a plane crash when she was seventeen; her only sister committed suicide days after. Now, nearly a decade later, Sarah assures everyone she is perfectly fine--never mind her quiet aloofness, her intensity at work, her seeming neglect of any social life. Only Sarah knows the whole story. Only she is aware of the dark memories that plague her with guilt--of the fear of discovery that paralyzes her soul.

But when an enigmatic illness forces the normally self-sufficient Sarah to depend on someone--namely the charming do-gooder of a neighbor, Adam, whom she has been trying desperately to avoid--her carefully built cocoon begins to crumble. Her family's home in Alabama, left vacant since the tragedy, still holds the grim evidence of her nightmares--and is slated for imminent demolition. With the horror of her past swiftly catching up to her, Sarah's malady begins to look less like a catastrophe--and more like her only way out.

But the (rather irreverent) reverend Adam Carmassi refuses to let Sarah go--not when she is the first woman who has ever truly touched his heart, and not when he is so certain he can help her. With the end of Sarah's life looming in more ways than one, Adam wages a desperate campaign to convince her that no matter what tortured secrets she insists on hiding, her life is worth living--and their chance of a future together, however slim, is a dream worth fighting for.

Edie Claire's books will make you feel good. Don't think this means that they are all rainbows and butterflies, because that isn't the case. The characters are real and rich and often fragile. But they don't give up. Their pain is often so real that your heart will ache, but stay with them. You will be glad you did. Adam is a kind young man who reaches out to his pretty young neighbor. She rebuffs him again and again. While he yearns to reach her, and finally begins to see her resistance crumble, he feels her secrets. Once she opens up to him, he can also feel her fear, but what is it that causes her such fear? Will he ever learn, and will she ever be completely his?
