An assignment restoring the Hidden Falls carousel could not have come at a better time for Julie Unger. A change of scenery, a chance to leave the heartbreak of her recent divorce behind her, and the opportunity to spend a year doing what she loves most - working with her beloved carousel horses - are all just what she needs. But what she doesn't expect is the presence of handsome architect Rick Swanson and his son Josh, a silent child traumatized by his mother's death. Josh has refused to speak since discovering his mother dead, a model of a stargazer carousel horse clutched in her hand. It will take a miracle to cure him of the trauma. But maybe all Josh needs is some time with Julie and her painted ponies...Both Julia and Rick are wounded by painful memories and wary of falling in love. Yet, sometimes, love and healing grow in the most unlikely of spots.

Amanda is a charter member of Romance Writers of America, a co-founder of its New Jersey chapter, and an avid traveler.
