That moment that changes your life.
That moment you love someone more than you love yourself.
That was the moment we gave our son up for adoption and the moment I was left bare. A wide-open space that would forever be empty.
There are moments that define you as a person, moments that prove just how strong you are, moments you push yourself to keep going forward when all you really want to do is give up. It was in one of those moments when I reached out and found him waiting for me.
When Shelby Calder left home fifteen years ago, she never planned on returning to the Alaskan town she left behind. But after the death of her grandfather and a bitter divorce, she hopes going home will be a fresh start for her and her ten-year-old son.
Zach Watters has made a lot of mistakes in his life. But when he sees Shelby Calder, looking more beautiful than ever, standing outside her childhood home, he promises himself that letting her go won't be a mistake he ever makes again.
Some things never change and love is one of them.

You make decisions as a teenager that will later seem like a mistake. But in the grand scheme of life, you made the best sacrifice so that someone else can have the life you couldn't give them.
That is what tore them apart, the loss of their child. Shelby couldn't handle the decision her and Zach made as teenagers. So she left, and now her life has come full circle and she has returned to the last place she was truly happy. Home. Home to Alaska, and face to face with the only person she ever really truly fell in love with. And Zach, after making his own personal mistakes and then putting his life back on track, is there waiting for her. And this time he won't make the mistake of losing her again. Sometimes your life takes you on a journey, just to bring you back to the beginning and the other half of your soul.
***I'm stunned by the negative attitudes against a book that most haven't even read. Remember the saying "don't judge a book by it's cover". Well, don't judge a book by the synopsis. Two teenagers, Zach and Shelby, made a decision that was heartbreakingly hard. But what was best for their child. Living with that decision is what tore them apart, and they both went down their own personal paths towards where they are now. In a place to find each other again, the other half of their heart. Never doubt that ARR will bring you full circle. Have we ever NOT had an HEA from her? Have we ever NOT gotten the romance or HOT passion? Zach is not the bad guy, and neither is Shelby. Teenage decisions started this journey. But adult, soul deep love completes it. Not all roads are smooth and easy, sometimes you get a lot of potholes and speed bumps along the way. That's just life. But if you're lucky, you get the beautiful sunset at the end.
