Laurel is back to Middledip to help her sister Rea. Fresh from her divorce, she wish to find back her feet in Cornwall, find a home where she would pursue her dream as a artist not back to a place she never want to be in again and least of all to meet Grady again. Her relationship with Grady has never been properly ended when she leave Middledip. And now, with Grady, she found the attraction between them still alive but how could they find the happiness that they want when being able to move on takes more than the word sorry from the individuals for what has happened in the past.
I enjoyed this romantic, heartwarming and uplifting story. The theme of forgiveness is strong in this book. It has a complex plot with sexual assaults and bullying as a theme and how the characters find their closure at the end of the story.The setting in Middledip, quaint English village is lovely with the author bringing to life with her vivid description of the place. Overall it is a heartwarming and emotional read for me .
