Ever since her husband came home from Afghanistan six years ago in a vegetative state, Margaret Kennedy has dutifully taken care of their Maine farm. She is content with her quiet life caring for the farm and her little boy, Gordon. Life changes dramatically when Margaret accepts an invitation to Washington D.C. to show support for a bill sponsoring aid for wounded soldiers. There she meets and falls in love with Foreign Service officer Charlie King--and faces the toughest decision she's ever had to make. A bittersweet and moving romantic drama from Monninger (The World As We Know It, 2011).
