To save her life, Hannah Benson fled her hometown as a teenager. She’s never looked back, not even to find out what happened to the mother and sister she left behind. Twenty years later, the past comes calling when the town sheriff, Grady Steadman-Hannah’s high school sweetheart, phones her with life-changing news: her mother and sister have both died, and she’s the sole relative of her 15 year old niece. Hannah had become used to the idea of going it alone, but she can’t shake her responsibility for her young niece. Returning home to bitter memories and devastating secrets, Hannah has to find a way to take on this new challenge without ruining lives-or risking her own sanity. And when her painful memories of this small town become mingled with the new, happier memories she’s creating with her niece-and the rekindled feelings she has for Grady - Hannah finds out once and for all if she’s strong enough to save her own life one more time.
