Luke Whittaker and Evelyn Young were high school sweethearts who had their whole lives together mapped out: they'd live on his family ranch while he worked and she studied, and then marry and raise a family.
Their plans came to a screeching halt one winter's night when a tragic accident claimed not only the lives of her parents, but also the life Evie had envisioned with Luke. Unable to cope with her grief, she fled their small town in the Colorado mountains, leaving Aurora Springs – and Luke – behind her.
Years later, another death in the family finally brings her home. Evie is once more plunged into mourning but being around Luke again makes her feel truly alive for the first time in years. Can he convince her to come home and begin the life together they'd always dreamed about, or will she let her fears and doubts destroy her heart for good?
