Welcome to Merritt, Alabama, where summers are lazy, tea is sweet, and guests are always welcome…


No matter how much money people are willing to pay for his handcrafted furniture, Will Garrett will always be the son of a drunk from Mill Town. Though he has admired Dr. Arabelle Avery since his teenage busboy days at the Merritt County Club, he has no illusions where she's concerned. A boy from across the tracks doesn't go calling on a state senator's daughter - no matter how much time has passed or how successful he's become.


At one time life was easy for Arabelle. But when her best friend wrapped her car around a tree, Arabelle was devastated. Going into Will's arms for comfort was unexpected but easy. When she finds herself pregnant and hears, incorrectly, that Will is engaged, she flees to Switzerland to lick her wounds and have her baby. Desperate to do the best thing for her child, she allows her cousin to adopt him - a decision she immediately regrets. When a twist of fate reunites Arabelle with her child, she moves home to Merritt, where she is determined to keep her secret for everyone's sake and raise her child in peace. But once Will gets a look at his son and guesses the truth, their lives spins out of control.


Can they find the path to what's best for their son—and each other? Or will Arabelle's life-altering secret ruin Will's trust in her forever?
