1971—In the tiny, backward town of Tulma, Tennessee, optimistic, bookish Caroline Carson unwittingly finds herself in the middle of a forbidden romance. Severely neglected by her family and forced to flee Tulma to protect her secrets, Caroline’s young life comes crashing down around her. She finds refuge in a new town, but the past always has a way of stretching around time and stirring up trouble.
When a new love comes into her life, she has to decide if she can give her heart to someone else, or if she will always be tied to someone she can’t have.
10 Stars!!! Being a small town girl from The South, I can tell you this story hit home. Caroline and Isaiah truly have my heart. I am so excited to be able to share this amazing story with others. No matter how many times I read it my heart still breaks, still rejoices, still cries. This story is truly one that will touch your heart long after you are done reading it. Amazing job, Willow you have truly written a masterpiece. Proud to be a southern girl who follows her heart and not the notions of the world around us. *A*
