After a heartbreaking divorce, Kerris Wells moves to a small northern Canadian town to renovate an old house she has inherited. She's never felt so alone as she takes her first uncertain steps into her new reality. She isn't just rebuilding a house. She's rebuilding her life, which will demand courage and hope—things she thought she had lost long ago.
Little by little, Kerris discovers she is being guided into the path followed by her beloved grandmother who was Kerris's oasis during her difficult childhood. That path helps her understand her past and the decisions that tore her family apart. But is it enough to help her move beyond the pain others have caused her?
The opportunity is all around Kerris to redefine family and find peace—if she can only let go of anger and sorrow to make room for new friendships, a caring family, and a new love.
