At a crossroads in her military career, coming home to Willow Springs, Vermont, is bittersweet for Ciara Miller. Her parents have moved to Florida, her great aunt resides at New Eden Assisted Living, and her high school sweetheart is a widower raising twin girls.
Eight years ago, Tad Brownley, a lowly mechanic in his father’s garage, felt he had nothing to offer Ciara, the love of his life, so he let her go to chase her dream to serve as a military nurse. Now she’s back on leave and he still doesn’t have much to offer or the time for a relationship no matter how fleeting.
Despite Tad’s mother and Ciara’s great aunt’s matchmaking efforts, can their renewed romance sustain a long-term relationship? Or will her call to duty split them apart again?
