Award-winning author Susan Crandall delivers a moving tale of a woman who's always dreamed of leaving her small town, and the man who gives her one last reason to stay.
Six years ago tragedy struck and Caroline Rogers had to make tough decisions to sell the family farm and put her life on hold to raise her younger siblings. Now that they are entering adulthood and her long-delayed photography career is taking off, she can almost taste the freedom.
Shaken by self-doubt, Dr. Mick Larsen turns his back on his big-city psychiatric practice and settles for the small-town quiet of Redbud Mill, shere he can hide his past successes and failures.
To Caroline, he shows only a man who wants to put down roots and start a family — good reasons for her to say away. Then someone starts vandalizing local landmarks she has photographed. Now Caroline must convince a man with little faith in his own abilities that he can help her find the disturbed mind in their midst. But even as she teaches him to trust himself, she must fight the temptation to trust him with her future and her heart.
