About the Book

Sara Thompson Layton, professor of History, is a woman grounded in the present, yet fascinated by the past and its intricate weavings and subsequent outcomes. She’s a strong, resilient woman who has spent most of her thirty-eight years sheathing her emotions in a protective shell of reason and logic. The only man who has ever been able to breech that wall is Robert Rollins, a man with his own protective shell. The intense emotional bond they shared was unlike any either of these two guarded spirits had ever experienced, but the turmoil and uncertainty in their lives was too much for their fragile relationship to bear.

When Rob re-enters Sara’s life seven years later, she is reluctant to risk her heart again and is locked in an emotional struggle until the day she purchases the century-old memoir of early Texas pioneer John Rollins. What Sara discovers within this weathered book unexpectedly opens a window to her own past and a 150 year old bond that shakes the foundation of her logical world, forcing her to reexamine what she believed to be a long-dead relationship.

Accepting the improbable, Sara finds the courage to let go and listen with her heart.

Fate may have brought Sara and Rob together, but only they can choose their destiny.
