She wants to fade away. He can't possibly let her.
Elizabeth arrives in small, Southern Bryeton to teach first grade in 1948, hiding a painful secret that haunts her. She doesn't count on falling for Jake, a WWII veteran struggling to raise his young son after his wife abandons them amid a swirl of scandal.
He's everything she ever wanted yet can't have. Between her secret and his soon-to-be-ex-wife, more than enough reasons exist to deny their attraction. When one little boy runs away, all pretense falls away. Can they face the truth and follow their hearts?
This is a sweet romance.
