Small-town librarian Sally Scott’s life is made up of a series of tremendous heartbreaks. Her parents died when she was young, the love of her life just married somebody else, and looking after her agoraphobic aunt means she can’t leave town despite having no true friends to confide in. Only her beloved books provide any true escape.
Tobias Lloyd left town to make something of himself, but whenever he returns to Sweet Grove, he remains on the outside. It’s really no different than before he’d left, thanks to his grandfather’s insistence that they were better than the others. But all Tobias has wanted are some friends. Maybe once he’s a lawyer and not a business competitor, he’ll be able to fit in.
When their paths intersect at an event neither want to attend, both will find themselves questioning everything they once thought they knew about themselves and friendship.
Don’t miss the chance to lose your heart to Sally, Tobias, and the entire town of Sweet Grove in this moving saga of faith, hope, and love from a New York Times bestselling author.
