Jake Cooper just wants to go home. It’s been six years. Six long years since he lived the peaceful life he loved, the life of a rancher in the young and untamed Texas. Jake wants to slip back into Cottenwood, the town his father made, and go back to living his life. Back to when things were simple. Jake Cooper wants to go back to the family ranch and return it to its former glory. Turns out, going home is not that easy. Cottenwood has changed, Jake has changed, and he quickly learns the ranch is no longer his. Jake learns, before he can truly come home, he must face his demons from the past, the town’s self-indulgent banker swindled Jake out of the family ranch, and the difficult widow who now owns his ranch.
