When a young Kirk Robinson leaves Clearview, Alabama, he’s a celebrated high school quarter back with a future so bright it outshines even the stars in heaven. He has the world at his feet, including a promising military career and a woman he loves more than life itself.
Five years later, he returns to Clearview, wondering if it’s possible to pick up the pieces of a life long forgotten.
Annabeth Sparks is left heartbroken and pregnant when Kirk sends her a cold ‘Dear Jane’ letter from the Gulf. He promised he’d come back to her; that he’d stay safe for her, but after that one letter, she never hears from him again. She raises their son Wade, not even knowing if Kirk is alive or dead.
So when their paths cross once more, Annabeth has no idea what to do. They brought a child into the world together, but that doesn’t mean she can forgive Kirk. The past is a barbed wire fence that stretches between them, threatening to ruin any chance they have at the happily ever after they once believed in with all their hearts. Annabeth doesn’t know if she’ll ever understand what happened between them, but she knows she’s in just as much danger of falling head over heels in love with Kirk… if she isn’t careful.
