From the Inside Flap
Everyone deserves a new beginning. But sometimes fate isn’t on your side…
Over one short weekend, when musician Scott and children’s author Frankie meet by chance, a profound connection is made. Their homes are thousands of miles apart: Frankie and her children live by the coast of North Norfolk while Scott’s roots lie deep in the mountains of British Columbia. Against all advice, they decide to see where this might go.
Over oceans and time zones, they make sacrifices and take risks, discovering along the way new truths about love and family. For the first time in a long while, it seems life could be very good. But fate has a twist in store, one that could destroy all that was hoped for
