RWA RITA award-winner Susan Crandall delivers another poignant story about a woman who's always dreamed of leaving her small town and the man who gives her one last reason to stay.
12 short months...that's how long photographer Caroline Rogers has until she gets her life back. 6 years since her parents passed away, leaving her to take care of her two younger siblings. But now it's only a year until her sister Macie starts college and Caroline has visions of working in exotic locations around the world. She's excited and terrified but she's ready...or so she thought until she sees the moving van in front of her old family farm. For when her parents passed away and an older woman bought their home, Caroline vowed to get it back one day. She never expected Mick Larson to snatch it up from right under her nose.
Mick Larson knew he had to get out of Chicago and start a new life. Leaving a thriving career in psychiatry and a broken heart, he moved back home and bought the Rogers' farm. The last thing he needs right now is this fiery-haired woman in his kitchen, demanding answers from him. But he sees a strength in Caroline's eyes and a warmth in her smile that he desperately needs in his life. Could this farm be the answer to his prayers in more ways than one?
