Description

In the small town of Winsome, Illinois, two people discover the confusing, complex, and beautiful nature of friendship.

After her Silicon Valley start-up shuts down, Alyssa Harrison returns to Winsome, Illinois, to regroup and then move on. Yet as friends and family welcome her back, she begins to envision a future in this small Midwestern community. When another setback lands Alyssa back at home with her estranged mother, Janet, Alyssa is forced to confront her past, the lens through which she remembers it, and the people she has hurt along the way.

Certain of a cool welcome in Winsome, newcomer Curtis Miller buys the town's coffee shop to be near his daughter. Though he keeps his focus on his daughter and his work, he finds himself drawn to Alyssa Harrison. When he asks for her help in making his shop more appealing to the community, he wonders if something is growing between them--until Alyssa betrays him. Now caught in a legal battle for his daughter and another battle for his shop and reputation, Curtis doesn't know whom to trust.

Loyalty and faith are tested as Alyssa and Curtis learn how to truly show up for one another and discover that sometimes we all need a second chance and a whole lot of grace.
