After being injured in Afghanistan, former soldier Dal Savatch thought he'd lost everything. But working on a horse ranch for disabled children teaches him to appreciate the life he still has. When the new forest ranger in town turns out to be Dal's first love, his tranquil world is turned upside down. For years, Julie Granger's been carrying a painful secret that's prevented her from having what she wants most: a family. Reuniting with Dal has her suddenly believing in dreams she thought were long buried. Can two wounded souls find healing and happiness in a future together?
