After serving five years in prison for a tragic mistake, Kenna Rowan returns to the town where it all went wrong, hoping to reunite with her four-year-old daughter. But the bridges Kenna burned are proving impossible to rebuild. Everyone in her daughter’s life is determined to shut Kenna out, no matter how hard she works to prove herself.

The only person who hasn’t closed the door on her completely is Ledger Ward, a local bar owner and one of the few remaining links to Kenna’s daughter. But if anyone were to discover how Ledger is slowly becoming an important part of Kenna’s life, both would risk losing the trust of everyone important to them.

The two form a connection despite the pressure surrounding them, but as their romance grows, so does the risk. Kenna must find a way to absolve the mistakes of her past in order to build a future out of hope and healing.

This book was so beautiful it was breaking me chapter by chapter. Exploring empathy, forgiveness, and impossible situations where every decision hurts someone. It's serving a whole slice of you don't know the full story to pass judgment on others.

Dual POV and letters. A dangerous combination for tears. I was falling in love with Kenna through Ledger and vice-versa. Two people in impossible situations, where being together could mean losing everything they hold dear. The letters that Kenna writes Scotty are so honest and poignant AND GODDAMN IT! MY HEART WAS HURTING.

I can't even put into words how much I loved this book. Just such a gem from chapter 1. From Ledger's first chapter I knew I was in danger. By the end, this man has solidified himself in my heart. What a beautiful human. His actions, his morals, his fierce protectiveness over the little girl he sees as his flesh and blood, and his empathy through the whole story makes this man a top-tier fictional husband.

CoHo, thank you for breaking my heart and putting it back together in the best way.
