Sometimes love finds you when you least expect it . . .
To Benita Ford, Tallgrass, Oklahoma, will always be home.
It's where her beloved grandmother raised her and where
she rode bikes with her two best friends-the man who
became her husband and Calvin. And Tallgrass is where she
stayed, even after her husband died while serving his
country. Now Calvin is home from that same war, and the
sensitive, mischievous boy she once knew is today a man
scarred by wounds no one else can see. Falling in love
with him is something Bennie never imagined.
Tallgrass still haunts Captain Calvin Sweet. Yet it's
where he must go to see Bennie-the one woman he always
loved but could never have. Calvin regrets so much about
what happened years ago. Still he can't deny being with
Bennie makes his future feel bright, like anything is
possible. But the demons of his past won't be quieted
that easily. As old hurts linger, threatening to pull
them apart, Calvin and Bennie must take the ultimate risk
for the love of a lifetime . . .
