Grace Elliot has returned to the family house where her brother Steven and sister Faith have turned over their 1/3 of the property to her as their father had passed away a few weeks ago.
She planned on running it as a Bed and Breakfast but an Inn would be better for long term residents which a lot of them are the elderly of the town.
Her best friend, Promise Delaney is going to be going through breast cancer surgery and chemo and will need her help.
Dillion Campbell, the boy she was to attend the prom with but didn't show up after speaking to her father, is back in town. He was a reported covering the war and now writes novels.
He's so tired he needs to rent Grace's guesthouse in the back to recuperate and to help by paying for his stay.
Jonah who had lost all his retirement money was living there.
Maxie's cousin stayed after her dad's funeral and never left.
Daily life goes on as they get the guesthouse ready for Dilion, he does most of the work with others helping with the light sewing.
They are all there for Promise after her surgery.
Grace is starting to feel comfortable with Dilion again and she talks to him about his new book and how to make it better than the last one he wrote. She has a LOT of issues from the past, mostly her dad who didn't have a good word to say about her at all.
She has to overcome all that.
A lot of secrets come out and the rest of the book helps make sense of what happened earlier in their lives. Awesome read!
Grace Elliot has grown up in a house where she saw alot of heartache and never had a chance to know what it was to be loved or to love deeply.
She suffered abuse as a child both physical and emotional and as an adult felt she did not deserved to be loved but people come into her life and she learns differently.
Her changes when Dillon, her brother's best friend, comes back into her life and helps her "blossom" and grow.
She watches as her best friend from childhood, Promise, fights for her life. She discovers and solves a mystery that answers alot of unkowns in her life of why her father never loved her.
There are Steven, Promise, Maxie, Jonah, Faith, Grant and most importantly, Dillon who all are part Grace's life who all tie together to make Grace's story one you will not soon forget.
Just a warning be sure to have a box of tissue handy as you read this book.
Life is changing for Grace. She knew her father was a bitter old man, but just now understands the full extent of his vindictiveness. Even still, she has demons in her past that she is just not ready to face. Dillon, on the other hand, is finding that there really is a woman underneath all the overalls and bad hair and wants to help Grace slay those dragons...but his past is off-limits.
I usually avoid stories like this: abuse is not an easy thing to read about. Grace was the least favorite of her father's; she was abused physically and emotionally. She's been conditioned by her father to think less than herself and is having trouble letting go of those mean words that haunt her every day.
I cried so much in this story. It was heart wrenching to read about what Grace endured and how it affects the lives of the people around her. It was also hard to read about Maxie's past and health issues. It was hard to read about Promise and her battle with cancer. It was just difficult.
This isn't a light hearted romance, this is a real life, dig-down-deep story of a woman overcoming the abuse and neglect in her life to embrace a life full of friends, family, and love.
