Book 2 of the epic romantic adventure..."Gritty, sexy, inspirational..." Twelve-year-old Caroline has a secret which she usually hides fairly well. But when she meets fourteen year old Toby during the most amazing four days of her life, he guesses immediately that she is a victim of abuse. Caroline swears him to secrecy and for a brief moment in time he becomes her confidant, her hero, her knight in shining armor. That is, until they are torn apart by circumstances beyond their control. Fifteen years later, a southern girl struggling to survive in the New York jungle of wannabe dancers, Caroline Jones steadfastly and cheerfully makes her way through each day.
She deals with her financial struggles and her lowlife landlord the same way she deals with everything, without complaint, straightforward, one foot in front of the other. Country music’s most eligible bachelor, Toby Nash, has stopped believing in love, at least not the kind written about by poets. That is until he runs into his childhood friend in the most unlikely of places. Stunned to find the girl who’s haunted him for fifteen years, he realizes why he’s never found love. Vanquishing both old and new demons together, they learn about life, about sacrifice, about survival and eventually learn to believe in love again.
