Nineteen year old Grace Meredith didn’t say no to the Big Man On Campus, Scott Dwyer. And then her life changed...
Grace makes her way to a new town and with the kindness of strangers, establishes a business called The Pet Emporium where she grooms , what else? Dogs and cats.
Years later, a too-close encounter of an unpleasant kind with a skunk and Scott’s German Shepherd reunites the former lovers.
What happens in between are their stories of beginnings and endings and love lost, then found.
