For anyone who's ever wanted to start over . . .
Julia DeSmit's life has been marked by loss. After her mother leaves and her father dies when she's just sixteen, Julia is determined to escape the confines of her gossipy, conservative Christian town.
When her best friend and first love, Thomas, breaks her heart, Julia leaves for college-the perfect place to reinvent herself. But one wrong decision changes her forever, and she returns to her grandmother's farm, weary and defeated.
Yet hope takes root in unexpected places, and Julia discovers that starting over looks nothing like she imagined.
