America’s Heartland, 1946. World War II has ended, and everyone is pursuing peacetime’s bright promise with fresh energy and hope. Newly arrived in a small Wisconsin town, Christina Tucker now dares to chase her long-cherished dreams: put her wartime nursing skills to use and reconnect with country life. But helping a shell-shocked veteran recover soon tests her determination and stirs up town memories best left buried. She has no choice but to turn to her patient’s seemingly irresponsible brother, Tyler Sutter.

A restless ex-soldier, Tyler can’t believe this pretty, ladylike nurse can heal his family. Yet as Christina begins to understand Tyler’s own fears, the two grow close, then closer still as a terrible secret sparks one man’s violent, vengeful spree. With both the guilty and the innocent in harm’s way, Tyler and Christina must face all their fears—or never live to see the future.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Few authors capture the atmosphere and voices of the heartland during the mid-twentieth century like Garlock. She completes her Tucker family trilogy with a tender, realistic look at small-town America after WWII and what war can do to those who fought and those who waited at home. Crisp prose and simple words cannot hide the powerful underlying lessons of loss, friendship, brotherly love, family ties, and the simple acts of kindness that bind a community.”

  • “All the hallmarks of a Garlock historical romance are here, including a feisty heroine, a tortured hero, nicely drawn details of the era, and evil antagonists.”

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Doris | 11/16/2013

    " An enjoyable story, a variety of characters with human faults, with enough backstory to make them real. At first I was jolted into confusion by Garlock's use of semicolons; but after a while I learned to accept them and move on. "

    " Enjoy many of Dorothy Garlock's books, but not this one. Something about the characters grates and doesn't ring true. Finished the book, but... Hopefully her next book will be better. "

    " This book was a little all over the place for me and I didn't feel like there was enough emphasis on the developing romance. "
