Jake Richardson long ago abandoned his dream for a creative, professional life in the city and, instead, settled into a routine existence on his rural Illinois family farm. Though now in a dispassionate marriage, he does manage to find joy and purpose with his two teenaged sons, close-knit community, and friends. But, one Friend Request changes everything.
The name Rose Allison, popping up on his computer screen, fills him with vivid memories of a powerful bond, forged amidst the heat of 1960s politics, culture, and music. Her simple message opens up a fresh world of opportunity for them both as technology shrinks their geographical and emotional distance. They regain a chance to heal individual and mutual demons, and potentially rekindle the passion and fulfillment so many people only dream about with their first love.
