A first love is never easily forgotten…
and coming face to face with that person again can be awkward when the heartstrings are still holding on to the “what ifs.”
In settings from 1865 to 1910, nine couples are thrown back on the same path by life’s changes and challenges. A neighbor returns from law school. An heiress seeks a quick marriage. A soldier’s homecoming is painful. A family needs help. A prodigal son returns. A rogue aeronaut drops from the sky. A runaway bridegroom comes home. A letter for aid is sent. A doctor needs a nurse. Can love rekindle despite the separation of time and space?

Best-selling author Marcia Gruver’s southern-comfortable roots lend touches of humor and threads of faith to her writing. When she’s not pounding a keyboard, you’ll find her clutching a game system controller, riding shotgun on Texas Hill Country treks, or sipping mugs of hot tea on the front porch. Lifelong Texans, Marcia and her husband Lee have five children, thirteen grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren—so far.
“God has been good to my family and unerringly faithful, despite the trials of everyday living. I offered Him the wreckage of my life at a very young age, and He graciously accepted. In return, He provides unfathomable love, stalwart protection, peace in place of fear, joy in times of sorrow, and very broad shoulders to lean on. Doesn’t that describe the ultimate hero? I wholeheartedly recommend you consider Him and His offer of salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ. You’ll be eternally grateful you did.”
