She was his anchor.
He was her home.
Gracie Taylor fell in love with Noah Chase on the first day of kindergarten. Gracie was the girl from the wrong side of town. Noah was the town's golden boy. Their families had been at loggerheads since the death of Gracie's mother years ago and as they grew up, they had to risk everything to be together.
But it was worth it, because when they were together, nothing else mattered.
Then, on their wedding day, Gracie discovered a secret that sent her running from Idle Point, leaving Noah with a broken heart to match her own.
Now, eight years later, Gracie returns to Maine for her father's wedding. When she discovers Noah has come home to Idle Point to save the family business - and that he has a little daughter named Sophie - Gracie also discovers that nothing has changed. Their love for each other is stronger than ever, but the secrets that drove them apart still hold the power to ruin their lives.
Will past mistakes destroy their love or will they finally find happiness together... at last?

"Very few romance writers create characters as well developed and realistic as Bretton's. Her books pull you in and don't let you leave until the last word is read." (Booklist (starred review))
"An emotional contemporary tale that hits the guts and heart with force." (Painted Rock)
the story was overall pretty good. I really struggled with the tragic running away instead of facing and making sure the story was accurate. it did not feel realistic.
