From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julie Ann Walker comes an epic story about sacrifice, friendship, and the awe-inspiring power of love.
Maggie: Ten years ago, Cash Armstrong stole my heart. Then he promptly joined the army—dragging my best friend with him—and left me crying on the front porch in a red sequined prom dress. Now he's back. They're both back. Cash, the one who still has my heart. And Luc, the one who saved my life.
Cash: How do you know if you’re at the end of the beginning or the beginning of the end? That's what I've been trying to figure out since a traumatic brain injury made me "unfit to serve." I'm back in New Orleans, and picking up the shattered pieces of my past means I must confront where my life's journey began... and where it all might end.
Luc: Long ago, Maggie May was mine. Not mine in the way you might think. She was mine because she was my only friend. Then Cash came along and we became brothers by something stronger than blood. We became brothers by choice. When tragedy struck, I was forced to make a decision that changed all our lives. I thought, after ten years, it was safe to come back home. I was wrong...

I’ve read many good books over the years, read a few great ones too. This goes in with the best of the best. Emotional roller coaster, suspense, drama, romance, humor, history- this book has it all. Enjoy
This book wrecked me
I am wrecked after reading the conclusion to this story.
Even though I saw a lot of things coming in this book, I was, in no way, prepared for the emotions that overtook me. I was heartbroken for Maggie and Luc. And yet, I was in love with their story. So many conflicting emotions, yet I can't stop thinking about the stories. This really was multiple storylines going on at once, but they had interconnections.
I think Cash is wise beyond his years and his love for his best friends can never be questioned. I wish Maggie and Luc the best in their future and I hope they heed Cash's well intentions. Maybe someday we can get a short follow up on them. I would love to see them raising kids in the cottage house.
I didn’t see that ending coming, definitely a tear jerker. Ughhhh still crying.
