Lurlene McDaniel intertwines a family saga with a grand love story about ordinary people dealing with extraordinary circumstances. For fans of Sarah Dessen’s The Moon and More and Ann Brashares’s Forever in Blue.
Ciana Beauchamp hasn’t seen or heard from Jon Mercer in months. Until now. He’s back in Windemere to see her. Deep down Ciana is filled with joy and relief. She’s never stopped loving him. It’s proof of Jon’s love that he has returned, but what will their future be?
Working hard to maintain the family land that her grandmother left to her, Ciana is approached by a real estate developer who offers her a deal that could benefit the Beauchamp estate and possibly the entire town of Windemere, which has seen better days. But Ciana is determined not to sell—for the sake of her heritage and the honor of her grandmother.
When tragedy strikes, almost no one in town is left unscathed. Tragedy has a way of bringing people together, but it can also tear them apart. Ciana can hardly face her choices, but she knows she must, and there are now people who she can turn to if only she is willing.
