Publisher's Summary

Come hell or high water, Emmy Jo Massey will have a wedding. After three generations of Massey women with children out of wedlock, she wants the whole town of Hickory, Texas, to witness the legitimacy of her union with Logan Grady. But dream weddings aren't cheap. So she accepts a highly lucrative stint as a home health assistant to retired realtor, and town recluse, Seth Thomas - a decision her great-grandmother Tandy is dead-set against.

Seth isn't happy about it, either. The eighty-two-year-old doesn't want a "babysitter" - much less a Massey - something he makes clear when Emmy arrives at his house, an empty mansion built for the woman who broke his heart. But as Emmy stays and the two eventually open up to each other, she learns the reason behind a feud between Seth, Tandy, and Logan's grandfather Jesse Grady that goes back six decades. She also uncovers a secret that forever changes how she sees her past and her future...

    "Triumph over pain"

    This narrator drew me in and enfolded me with the story of old wounds made right by a wonderful main character who I wished was part of my own family. I loved this book!

    "Must read/listen to this book"

    Carolyn Brown has written a story that captures the attention of the listener right away. Narration was very good, easy to follow. The story touched on some very difficult subjects, but she was able to really pull at the listeners heart.
    I was laughing, crying and cheering the characters' on thorough out the whole story.

    Story
    "Poor accent"

    Having lived in Texas most of my life, I feel comfortable in saying people in Texas do not have the horrid fake accents this narrator has. I almost stopped listening because I found the narrator to be so bad. The story is wonderful and I'm glad I was able to get past the terrible, fake accent of the narration and focus on the story. If you are not from the south it might not bother you.
