Why did their differences matter so much?

As a person of mixed race, Shayla Michaels has felt like she straddled two worlds all her life. Neither set of grandparents approved of her parents’ marriage, making it hard to be a family. Amidst the weight of rejection, her mother dies, her brother is incarcerated, and Shayla becomes responsible for two family members: her embittered and resentful father and her niece, Portia, who is, for all practical purposes, an orphan.

Link Whitman unintentionally finds himself a bachelor. With no social life to speak of, he pulls extra shifts at his dead-end job in addition to helping out his parents at the Chicory Inn. Then one icy morning, a child runs into the street and Link nearly hits her with his pick-up truck. That’s when he meets the girl’s aunt, Shayla, and everything changes.

Soon Link is falling in love with this beautiful woman who runs Coffee’s On, the bakery in Langhorne. And the prejudice Shayla has felt all her life rears its ugly head again. She knows God loves everyone, but why can’t people accept others for what’s on the inside? Can Link and Shayla overcome society’s view of their relationship and find true love? Is there hope that intolerance might change, making the world a better place for everyone?
