Jo Ellen Baker is shocked to find out that the boy who teased her mercilessly throughout high school, has returned to their hometown of Freedom Lake, and he’s missing a leg. When his mother asks her to renovate their carriage house to give him a place to gain his independence back, she wants to say no. But one look at him brings a rush of forgotten feelings.
Evan Carter can’t believe he has to return home and live with his parents. Every hope and dream he ever had dissipated in a car crash that cost him his leg. Stuck in a wheelchair, he’s forced to reexamine his relationship with God and the local carpenter, Jo Ellen Baker.
Will renovating his home open the door for a mended relationship, or are some wounds too deep to heal from?

Evan returns home after an accident and dealing with loss of a leg. Actually ends being others that return home to Freedom lake also. Love the relationship Jo had with her Grandmother. Jo’s father passed away and takes over his construction business and also lives with her mom to be with her after his passing. They have an difficult relationship at times but will that change or not? This book kept my interest from the first page to the last. I really loved the inspirational part of the book. I am hoping I get to read more about the characters in other books. The characters became like family. I received an complementary copy of the book from Celebrate Lit Publishers for an honest review.
