Exhibit A: Faith’s little sister, Skye, who muddled through her first divorce at the tender age of 21. Faith has always provided damage control when Skye’s love life gets too reminiscent of a daytime drama. But now that Faith has finally found the job, if not the man, of her dreams – as a culinary writer, currently living la dolce vita in Italy – she can’t just jet back to small-town Minnesota to help her suddenly pregnant little sister heal her broken heart and anemic bank account.
Faith has been putting off this homecoming for years, ever since her dad left her family in the lurch, her mother left her in charge of Skye, and a sub-zero case of cold feet led her to call off the engagement to her high school sweetheart, Flynn. But a return to the amber fields of grain might just be what Faith needs to gain some perspective on her past – and figure out her future. It’s been way too long since her last love affair…memories of Flynn still get in the way of every man she meets. But if she and Flynn are really meant to be, why does the path to happily ever after have so many potholes?
