This book is a one-of-a kind, realistic look at what happens when people face tragedy and pain and are forced to come out the other side. Greer Hadley is a talented musician who has lost her chance in Nashville and returns to her hometown of Madison, TN with her “tail between her legs.” Because of multiple wrong choices, she ends up having to do community service. Thus, the stage is set for a wonderful love story, told with so much pathos that the emotions jump off the pages. One of the persons that Greer is supposed to help is Ally, a sarcastic and bitter teen whose father has just died. She also is assigned to help Emmett, a soldier home from the war who is wounded in body and spirit. The path that Greer takes to help the two of them find joy in life again is amazing! Greer demonstrates sarcastic wit and wisdom in her interactions with those whom she is supposed to help. The characters are well-crafted in such a way that their weaknesses are believable. The drama in the book is slowly revealed, like an old Polaroid photo that slowly becomes colorful and detailed. I loved the entire book, and as the wife of a retired military member, it is hard to impress me with a book having anything to do with war victims. This is a cheerful, clean romance that will uplift the readers and make us all beg for more from this talented author.
