New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sharon Sala continues the bestselling Blessings, Georgia series.
Not only did a family member steal the money Hunt Knox had saved for college, three of his siblings and his father hid the truth and told him to get over it. Betrayed by their lies and thievery, eighteen-year-old Hunt joined the army and wound up flying Apache helicopters during the war in Iraq. Fifteen years later, he's a chopper pilot for an oil company in Houston, Texas. His father has been dead for six years, and he still hasn't been home, but he returns to Blessings at his mother's dying request.
Ava Ridley, the little girl his mother used to babysit, has grown up and is now a nurse at his mother's bedside when he arrives. Ava is overjoyed to see him. She had a childhood crush on Hunt, which turned to love as she got older, but he never knew because to him she was just a kid.
After his mother passes, Hunt's determined to grant her dying wish and remodel the old family home to sell. He never expected to fall in love, but he does. Then, just as it appears he and Ava are headed for a happy ever after, she becomes a victim of violence at the hospital ER in Blessings, and suffers an injury that stops her heart. Hunt performs CPR until the doctor arrives with a defibrillator to restart her heart. After that, it's hours and hours of wait and see, to find out if she will fully recover.
In all this, Hunt finally learns the truth about the secret that tore his family apart. Ava heals, Hunt and his siblings repair their relationship, and Hunt and Ava leave to begin a new life together in Houston.
