The final Walker sibling, Mac gets her second chase story with Zan. After his ten year absence from the Walker family Zan returns to take care of his grandfather's estate. Much to his surprise the Walkers as well as everyone else on the Mountain have moved on and lived life. Brett, Poppy and Shay have paired up except for Mac. He imagined she would be the same girl he left behind ten years ago but, she's not. Mac may not be engaged or married like her siblings but she has changed. She carries the weight of the family on her shoulders and manages her own business while keeping her heart behind walls.
It is such a moving and touching story. The pain of loosing people you love and of love that is not recognized are the main themes. Mac and Zan handle these things in different manners and with stubbornness while protecting their hearts. This is also a story of family - it's strength, endurance, acceptance and forgiveness.
The secondary story between Tilda and Ash is a nice compliment to Mac and Zan. It also lends itself to the "what it could have been" element had Zan stayed on Walker Mountain all those years ago.
I shed some tears, had a few chuckles and couldn't stop smiling at the end.
