Summary
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * When a woman alone in the world bravely chooses to open her heart, two lost souls have a new chance at belonging, in this intimate novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber.

A new beginning in charming Oceanside, Washington, is exactly what Hope Godwin needs after the death of her twin brother. There are plenty of distractions, like her cozy cottage with the slightly nosy landlords next door, and a brewing drama among her students at the local high school.

Even having settled quickly into the community, Hope still feels something is still missing. That is, until her landlords convince her to volunteer at their animal shelter. There she meets Shadow, a rescue dog that everyone has given up on. But true to her name, Hope believes he's worth saving.

Like Shadow, shelter volunteer Cade Lincoln Jr. is suffering with injuries most can't see. A wounded ex-marine, Cade identifies with Shadow, assuming they are both beyond help. Hope senses that what they each need is someone to believe in them, and she has a lot of love to give. As she gains Shadow's trust, Hope notices Cade begins to open up as well. Finding the courage to be vulnerable again, Cade and Hope take steps toward a relationship, and Hope finally begins to feel at peace in her new home.

But Hope's happiness is put to the test when Cade's past conflicts resurface, and Hope becomes embroiled in the escalating situation at the high school. Love and compassion are supposed to heal all wounds, but are they enough to help Hope and Cade overcome the pain of their past and the obstacles in the way of a better future?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Alone in the world after her twin brother was killed in war, high-school teacher Hope Godwin is convinced by her landlord to volunteer at an animal shelter. Cade Lincoln, a wounded Afghanistan War veteran, estranged from his parents, also volunteers at the shelter after undergoing physical and mental therapy as well as doing community service. Shadow, an angry abandoned dog, steals both their hearts as Hope works with him so that he can be adopted. Serving as the school's counselor as well as teaching history, Hope invites Cade to be her date and serve as fellow chaperone at the homecoming dance. The school team is on a winning streak with scholarships in the offing for its top athletes, but when Hope starts investigating a situation threatening her students, her car is vandalized and increasing danger looms. Will Cade step up and help, or will repercussions from his past make things even more precarious? This tale of redemption and kindness is a gift to Macomber's many readers and all who love tales of sweet and healing romance."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Fan favorite Macomber (It's Better This Way) brings sweetness and sensitivity to this weighty military family romance. After teacher Hope Goodwin's beloved twin, Hunter, dies in Afghanistan, Hope escapes her native California for a small coastal town in Washington State. While volunteering at a local animal shelter, Hope meets John "Cade" Lincoln Jr., an Army veteran himself mourning the overseas deaths of his two closest friends. After a bar fight, Cade is taking anger management classes and fulfilling his court mandated community service at the shelter. Cade's immediately struck by Hope's patience with an abused and aggressive dog, and the pair forge a close relationship over the course of their service. But before they can imagine a future together, they both must face their pasts. Macomber gracefully deals with the harsh realities of grief; it's easy to empathize with her struggling protagonists, and though their relationship is realistically rocky, readers will have no trouble rooting for their happy ending. The result is a deeply moving contemporary. Agent: Theresa Park, Park & Fine. (July)"
