When Sara's dear friend Jamie asks her to help with restoration of her hometown, Harrow Springs, Mississippi, after a tornado ravages it, Sara is hesitant but eventually agrees. She hasn't been back in eight years-not since leaving her first love, Walt, behind. Although she hasn't fully gotten over him, she hopes returning will help her put her past to rest. After all, Walt will be thousands of miles away, working on a large project elsewhere.
Walt did not expect to be free to help with the rebuilding of Harrow Springs. But when his father and his brother, Ben, tell him that their neighbor and friend Jamie is heading the project, he rearranges his schedule to be there personally and help out. He has no idea that Jamie has called in Sara as well, the woman who left him heartbroken eight years ago. As the two are thrown together for the greater good of the community, they find themselves just as drawn to one another as they were before. Only time will tell, however, whether they can overcome their hurt and pride and find love once more.
In this novel, two people in love but long estranged must work to move past old pain and misunderstandings to find a new start together.
