Can a hurting boy help two broken people find their way back to love ? Lissa Frye returns home from the Navy hoping to find a different future-one which includes a husband, marriage, and a family, until news from her sister impacts Lissa's personal life and derails her plans. Kurt McKintrick, having lost his best friend to an IED in Afghanistan, has returned to help the man's mother run a horse rescue ranch.

Eleven-year-old Jayden Clarke seeks to fill the ache in his heart from his father's death two years before. But his life is turned upside down when the rancher who befriended him is found dead, the horses neglected, and the dog missing. When authorities arrive to investigate, Lissa and Kurt, estranged after a former relationship, are forced to meet again. Lissa must confront images from her past and Kurt struggles to live with his present truth. Will Jayden be the catalyst that draws Lissa and Kurt back together for a happily ever after?
