This book is a complete standalone.
That moment your life changes.
That moment that changes your life.
That moment you love someone more than you love yourself.
That was the moment we gave our son up for adoption and the moment I was left bare. A wide-open space that would forever be empty.
There are moments that define you as a person, moments that prove just how strong you are, moments you push yourself to keep going forward when all you really want to do is give up. It was in one of those moments when I reached out and found him waiting for me.
When Shelby Calder left home fifteen years ago, she never planned on returning to the Alaskan town she left behind. But after the death of her grandfather and a bitter divorce, she hopes going home will be a fresh start for her and her ten-year-old son.
Zach Watters has made a lot of mistakes in his life. But when he sees Shelby Calder, looking more beautiful than ever, standing outside her childhood home, he promises himself that letting her go won't be a mistake he ever makes again.
Some things never change and love is one of them.
I didn’t realize that I had a wide open space in my heart waiting for this book to fill! A beautifully emotional story of a love that survives time and distance. The emotions start right from the touching dedication and heartbreaking prologue and continue through the perfect epilogue.
“We were meant to be here, right now in this moment. We were meant to find each other again.”
Shelby Calder, fresh from a difficult divorce, returns to her family home in Alaska with her 10 year old son. Living right next door with his 2 teenagers is her first love, Zach Watters. Years earlier a young Shelby had left trying to run away from Zach and their most difficult decision. Both of them dealt with their loss in different ways that took them in opposite directions.
“I’ve been in love with you for almost eighteen years. I carried your missing pieces around inside me for that long,”
This book deals with topics that are so emotional and heartbreaking, but the author really helped me to connect with the characters and feel and see other sides to these issues. I am so glad that I went into this story with an open mind.
“I look up into his eyes and close mine briefly. That wide open space that always seemed impossible to fill was filled by him and the kids years ago, but every time I hear him tell me he loves me, it overflows and runs through me, filling me up impossibly full.”
I fell in love with Shelby and her story will stay with me for a long time.
