Sarah was looking forward to date night with Jake until she's left impatiently waiting at the cinema with no word from her boyfriend. When she gets two calls within minutes of each other, the first breaks her heart, but the second changes her world forever. How will she be able to move on with her life, when she can't ask Jake what really happened? In his first novella, Forgiving Jake is a story from Scott De Buitléir about love, loss, new possibilities, and learning how to heal a broken heart.
