At 26, Liberty Montgomery has barely begun to live life. Married nearly right out of high school, she's known no other life than the one her husband provided. Returning to Liberty Lake, her hometown namesake, with her 4 1/2 year old son in tow, Libby doesn't know what to expect. Rediscovering herself and her faith seem like insurmountable obstacles.

Jake Owens has always lived in Liberty Lake. He loves the town and the people in it. Running his father's construction business just seems like a natural progression of life. When Libby returns, bringing with it old feelings he thought he'd long buried, he finds himself wanting to help her in any way he can.

Libby isn't looking for help or friendship. She wants to stand on her own two feet. Love certainly isn't a dream she chases anymore. As a mother, she has her son to consider and her own wants don't enter the picture. Can she take what Jake is offering, and find a new life, one that provides all that she has been missing?
