"Once again Karen Rock has awed me with her writing style and descriptions. From the realities of autism to the plights of farmers, she tugs at readers’ hearts with her character’s raw emotions. But that doesn’t mean there’s no substance. The author obviously has knowledge in these areas, which she shares--educating and even supplying solutions.A decade after a love lost, Jodi Chapman and Daniel Gleason find themselves on opposite sides of an extremely heated battle. Hoping for a promotion at Midland Corp in Chicago, Jodi is determined to acquire 5000 acres of prime dairy land in her hometown of Cedar Bay, Vermont. Adding to the awkwardness is the fact that her former boyfriend, Daniel, desperately hopes to co-op the farms in the community so they can hold on to their heritage. Jodi fights for her son, Tyler, believing their future depends on her victory, but what about Daniel? Could this be a second chance for them. Memories play a large part in this story, with regrets and resentments springing up, not only for Jodi, but for Daniel and his family. And while she’s aware of the lives of those around her, Jodi must deal with her feelings and find a way to make a life for herself and Tyler." - Dale S Rogers
