Lizzie Benford's life is about to change in one really big way or another. Little does she know as she arrives home to the small southern town of Edenville, Alabama that a very important letter is waiting there to change the whole way she looks at her life. Lizzie is completely unaware that with the opening of this letter she will soon have to choose between the man she is engaged to marry in two weeks time, or the man she used to love more than life itself. Will she decide between a town and a man that have shaped the woman she has grown to be, or will she choose the man and the life that offer her a fresh start and a chance to become someone new? Payton Cartwright is Edenville's hometown hero. A football legend and every woman's deepest desire, he is deeply troubled by Lizzie's return to town. Will he be able to convince her to follow her heart and make a home here in Edenville, or is he destined to lose the woman that long ago he so deeply wounded?
