Annie Rush knows two things—she's got big dreams and she wants to be with Fletcher Wyndham forever. Growing up in rural Vermont on her family's maple syrup farm, she fantasizes about college, travel, and a long happy life with Fletcher. He was the town bad boy—tough, mysterious, hard-working, and completely devoted to Annie. But when a tragedy forces Fletcher to stay in Vermont while Annie pursues college and a career, they grow apart. Years later, Annie suffers a terrible accident and wakes from a yearlong coma to find herself back home. Fletcher, a divorced father of one, still lives there, now as a judge. Annie has an incredible amount of healing to do—not just her body but her heart after her failed relationship with Fletcher. They have a chance to rekindle their old flame, but only if they both avoid past mistakes and learn to forgive.
VERDICT This sweet yet dramatic and winding love story demonstrates the realities and complexities of love. Recommended for fans of realistic, heartwarming romances full of second chances. [See Prepub Alert, 2/21/16.]
