In the idyllic small town of Tucker, Vermont, life flows at a rhythmic pace for thirty-nine-year-old pediatrician Paige Pfeiffer. But when Mara O'Neill, Paige's best friend and medical partner, inexplicably commits suicide, Paige's comfortable world is shattered. Temporarily caring for Mara's newly adopted baby daughter while she comes to grips with her grief, Paige clings to hope that, in time, she'll understand why Mara chose to end her life, and Paige's own orderly life will return.
But just when Paige is at her darkest moment, fate steps in. Noah Perrine, acting head of the private school where Paige coaches girls' athletics, enters her life and fills her days with unexpected hope. But before Paige can allow herself to embrace a future she never imagined, she must let go of the past and learn to trust her newfound happiness.
