Publisher's Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • When a woman alone in the world bravely chooses to open her heart, two lost souls have a new chance at belonging, in this intimate novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber.

A new beginning in charming Oceanside, Washington, is exactly what Hope Godwin needs after the death of her twin brother. There are plenty of distractions, like her cozy cottage with the slightly nosy landlords next door, and a brewing drama among her students at the local high school.

Even having settled quickly into the community, Hope still feels something is still missing. That is, until her landlords convince her to volunteer at their animal shelter. There she meets Shadow, a rescue dog that everyone has given up on. But true to her name, Hope believes he’s worth saving.

Like Shadow, shelter volunteer Cade Lincoln Jr. is suffering with injuries most can’t see. A wounded ex-marine, Cade identifies with Shadow, assuming they are both beyond help. Hope senses that what they each need is someone to believe in them, and she has a lot of love to give. As she gains Shadow’s trust, Hope notices Cade begins to open up as well. Finding the courage to be vulnerable again, Cade and Hope take steps toward a relationship, and Hope finally begins to feel at peace in her new home.

But Hope’s happiness is put to the test when Cade’s past conflicts resurface, and Hope becomes embroiled in the escalating situation at the high school. Love and compassion are supposed to heal all wounds, but are they enough to help Hope and Cade overcome the pain of their past and the obstacles in the way of a better future?

Another Great Macomber Book

I almost always enjoy Debbie Macomber’s books. This was a story with trials for the characters, however, while real life doesn’t always have happy endings, I enjoy books that do. The end resulted, the way it should, for everyone, especially Shadow the dog, which I loved.

Great narrator

I enjoyed the story very much. A good narrator can make or break a story. I like that she changed her voice for each character and she was clear and had good variation in her tone. It was a “feel good” story and a reminder that although we all have problems, if we are persistent, we can overcome the obstacles in our life and become a better person.

Refreshing story

I have read and listened to many Debbie Macomber stories and have always enjoyed them. This is one of her best, no pun intended!
The characters are fully believable and the plot is quite timely. I Fully appreciated the story’s strong support and awareness of veterans’ issues.
The narrator Therese Plummer adds so much emotion to the audio rendition. Definitely recommend this!
