In the spirit of Nicholas Sparks, Robert Barclay has crafted a deeply moving story of love, hope, and forgiveness. As lives torn apart by a common tragedy slowly find a way to heal, two damaged souls get a second, surprising, chance at love. Still reeling from the deaths of his wife and son at the hands of a drunk driver, Wyatt Blaine is searching for a reason to go on. Unable to find closure, he turns to one of his late wife Krista’s passions, an equine therapy program for troubled teens at the family ranch. With the help of his minister and the support of the local community, Wyatt re-starts the program and begins to see the light at the tunnel. But just as the program is about to start, Gabby Powers, the widow of the man responsible for the death of Wyatt’s family, begs his permission to include her son Trevor in the program. Over time, Trevor begins to respond, as Wyatt and Gabby find surprising new aspects to their already complex relationship. As these three troubled souls who were once separated by a common tragedy near mutual closure, they find that they must examine the true natures of love and forgiveness in ways that they had never imagined.
