Publisher's Summary

A woman returns home to hide from her past mistakes and discovers one more chance at happiness.

Sandra Hurst has left her husband. Again. After dropping out of college to marry Trent, divorcing him, then remarrying him, she's shown up on her parents' doorstep nursing her wounds. But her parents refuse to help this time - emotionally or financially.

Desperate to earn money and determined to start over, she accepts an offer from her aunt to house-sit at the old family home, Cub Creek, in ruggedly beautiful rural Virginia. But when Sandra arrives, she finds the house has grown shabby, her aunt's dog is missing, and the garden is woefully overgrown. And she suspects her almost-ex-husband is on her trail.

As she begins to settle into the familiar homestead, powerful secrets and hurtful memories are unearthed. But Sandra discovers that to move on from the pain of her past, she must embrace the beauty of her future. Getting back to her roots - with a little help from her handsome new neighbor Colton and his son; her aunt's devoted dog, Honey; and a lush garden on the brink of either failing or flourishing - may be just what Sandra needs. And this final chance could lead to regaining her self-respect, making peace with her family, discovering what she's truly made of...and becoming the woman she was always meant to be. And along the way, she just might find a bit of happiness in each day.

Couldn't finish..



DNF @ 51%

At 37% I was wondering what this book was and why anyone would write it. Sandra is so crybaby-ish. She was stupid enough to remarry her ex-husband and when it doesn’t work out again she wants to blame everyone but herself. So, she leaves Trent and goes home to her parents and her father has dementia and her mother is a biotch. Her parents are retiring to Florida and the mom doesn’t seem to care about Sandra. She just wants her out of the house by the time the new owners take over. What? Of course Sandra loses all the cash she got from the sale of her car so she has to sleep in her dad’s car that the mom gave her. This chick had a perfectly good place to go but she thought she was too good to house sit for her aunt, until she had no choice. This book just went on and on with poor-me attitudes and bad decisions.

Yeah, I can’t finish this book. It’s all about the emotional crap her husband put her through the first time and she divorced him then married him again because she thought she could help him. Really? It’s too silly, Sandra is too silly. There’s a lot of 4 and 5 star reviews on Goodreads but this book is definitely NOT for me.

So, no romance, no nothing up until 51% when I quit.

As to the narration: It surprises me that in 2017 a female narrator still doesn’t lower her voice when a man is speaking. Shannon McManus is a narrator I will probably not listen to again. I can’t stand when a man sounds like a girl. That’s not my kind of listen.

Alone or not

How does one find themselves?
Find yourself alone and for long periods of time. That's what it will take to see if you can truly deal with your own company.
lol. Great novel 👍 😀.

Read ONLY if you like self doubters!

This book is so full of whining, self doubt! It's hard to focus on the story because of this!! I can't believe I actually finished the book!

Happiness In Between

The story was very well written. This tells with what one could do following with what her life could be. This was a very useful and simple way to learn . The how much time it would be for the time of the story. There was the feeling that it was all ways her fault. She learn how to do things with herself. One needs self confidence in the way that is helpful. Friends and neighbors are very helpful, information on how to think about what issues there are.
