At fifty, Paul Crockett is no less haunted by the loss of his wife than the day she gave in to cancer twenty years ago. Convinced there will never again be a love like hers, he lives with a painful hole in his soul. Returning to his roots in Northern Michigan, he survives as a recluse, working construction and doing odd jobs. His passion for life is gone and yet he lives on. Once you’ve known true love, there’s no going back, or so he would believe. If there is any redemption in his world, it is the oneness with nature that permeates his being.
Claudia Cardinelli had always been optimistic, even despite the tough economy, but things changed. She suffered the miscarriage shortly after her father passed away. Her guilt may have contributed to driving her husband into the arms of another woman. She was gathering her strength, preparing to confront him when his untimely death shattered the last of her resolve. Thirty-five and at the nadir of her life, her heart broken by fate, she seeks retreat, heading north to the lake house where she meets Crockett. When Claudia enters his life, her unbridled spirit changes everything. For Claudia, to live is to love, and to love is to trust.
Love works in mysterious ways and its power to rejuvenate can be miraculous…
