At twenty-two, Celeste worked at Katherine s bakery, and hoped to buy the business once Katherine took early retirement. But when Katherine reconsidered that decision, Celeste fled to culinary school in New York only to return two months later, a shadow of the girl who d stormed out the door.

She longs for Celeste to confide in her now. But it will be a stranger in town an engaging young wanderer named Zach Fitzgerald who spurs them toward healing. As both women are drawn into Zach s questioning heart, they also rediscover their own appetites for truth and for love and gain the courage to face the past without being imprisoned by it.
