Eric Wells recently moved back home to Bluestone River to become the school principal. He finally got his dream of buying a home but, he is afraid of being a father because of his painful childhood. When his high school crush, Amy Morgan returns home with her troubled daughter, Cassie, Eric finds himself drawn to them.

I was very torn when reading this novel, I felt like both characters were hung up about their past. I felt like the romance moved very fast and when they hit a snag, they were both quick to go on the offensive. I feel like they didn't communicate enough with each other. I also felt like Eric was being a hypocrite when it came to Amy and her daughter. He was quick to judge other people (and including Amy) for their actions. For example, he didn't like how one mother "rewarded" a child's bad behavior but, Eric did the same thing with Cassie. The novel wasn't a bad book but, it was filled with flawed characters that I couldn't connect with.
