Following the vicious attack that cost him the fingers of one hand, young blacksmith Garrett Trentwell has no choice except to seek a new life path. Susanna Jones, on the other hand, will risk everything to escape the life of forced labor she’s known. When she’s hired as a waitress for a chain restaurant, opportunity presents itself, but there is nothing easy about reinventing oneself. Garrett and Susanna meet, clash and spar – and they cannot seem to help doing it again and again. Fortunately for them, Green Valley, Virginia is full of individuals who know a thing or two about survival and redemption. In the third book of the Green Valley series, both prove to be sorely needed.
