Ten years ago everything about him took her breath away, especially his music. But ten years ago, when everything seemed possible, it all fell apart.
Ten years ago Kate gave up music, her friends and all the possibilities of her future and established a new life for herself in Rome. There she began creating art pieces under the guidance of her handsome mentor and fiancé, Giancarlo, a member of an old wealthy Italian family. It’s a life she’s worked hard to achieve--glamorous, busy and a far cry from her past life.
When her father falls seriously ill Kate is forced to return to the small American college town where she grew up and where her life took a downward spiral almost a decade before. On her arrival she encounters Ethan, the mesmerizing musician that captured her attention all those years ago and one of the key people that prompted her flight. When she learns he’s staying at a friend's cabin and sharing friendship and his love of music with her father, a former professional musician, she finds it overwhelming and is immediately thrown back to that fateful college event when she first heard him play his guitar and sing.
As Kate struggles to adjust to her situation and the people she’d left behind all those years ago, she is forced to face her past and the choices she made.
