Fern and Will have one incredible day together. That’s all it took. One day exploring the city of Toronto. They make a deal to meet a year later at her family’s resort. Will never shows up. Until, nine years later, Will walks in the front door. Just months after Fern’s mother passes away and Will returns. That cannot be a coincidence.
Will has come to Fern’s resort to help her. But Fern may be the one to be most helpful to Will. It has been nearly a decade and he still knows her better than anyone. They help each other with their past and with their grief. From the author of “Every Summer After,” Carley Fortune has written another wonderful story of love, loss and growth. Check it out at the library.
