By a miracle she's held on to their mountainside farmand she'll keep holding on, no matter what. The property is Nora's one chance to wring some dignity out of the sham she's been living.The Vermont locals think she's a city girl on a nature kick, but she's not afraid to get her hands dirty. Nora's serious about learning the farming business
if she can figure out where to begin. Against the locals' skepticism, she has only one ally: Charles "C.W." Walker.C.W. is hardworking, gentle with the animals and a patient teacher of the hundreds of chores Nora needs to learn. Slowly she starts to believe she'll survive in her new life, even flourish. She might even be willing to open her heart again. But she won't return to a life of lies
and the truth about C.W. may be more than Nora's fragile heart can bear.
