and you remember forever. My love story with Bryce came later. Much later, after everything had happened.

dreams since that fateful night, his life is sent into a tailspin. As he gets
to know her again after all these years, he realizes she has never gotten over
the past. Will their shared pain bring them closer? And will they forge a new
beginning built on healing, forgiveness, and love?
