You can't go home again...or can you?
After surviving a devastating tragedy, combat reporter Nate Garrison returns to the only place that ever felt like home: Starfish Bay on the Northern California coast. But his reunion with childhood friend Lindsey Collier is nothing like he'd imagined. The wary widow who runs Star-fish Bay Mercantile was once the girl who made young Nate dream-of a future, of family ties, of deep roots. Now Lindsey avoids love, loss...and Nate. Yet when they join forces to save a be-loved town landmark and help a hurting little boy, might they also find healing, hope-and love?
In this Carol Award finalist, Irene Hannon pens a heartfelt tale of the lasting impact of friendship, the healing power of love, and the importance of touchstones-the people, places, and experiences we measure the world against-in our lives.
