Synopsis

Will their love be enough? When Wren witnesses the moment her fiance falls in love with someone else, she leaves home and heartbreak to spend the summer with her father and step-family on their farm in Indiana. There Wren meets Anders, still grieving the wife he lost four years ago, and she doesn't realise that her life is about to be turned upside-down again. As the harvest approaches, Wren's feelings for Anders grow stronger. But Anders is harbouring an earth-shattering secret, and if he acts on any feelings he has for Wren it will have serious fall-out for everyone. Walking away will hurt Wren more than she can imagine. But, knowing the truth, how can she possibly stay?
