ABOUT THE BOOK
A country music star has no reason to visit a sleepy town like Sweethaven, unless every relationship she treasures is in jeopardy.
When Meghan Rhodes is confronted by her dark past on national television, she knows she has one choice: to return home to Sweethaven and fight for the only thing that matters: her family. But even quaint cottage towns can house painful memories. Estranged from her mother, her children and the friends who once knew her better than anybody, Meghan is on a journey of redemption. As she searches for forgiveness as well as the ability to forgive, she begins to discover the healing power of the truth. Fighting unresolved feelings for her ex-husband, her desire to stay angry over her mother’s betrayal and her own regret, Meghan’s homecoming both challenges and terrifies her. As she embraces the scrapbook that tells the story of her triumphs and not her mistakes, Meghan dares to hope she can repair precious relationships and prove herself worthy of the love she’s never felt she deserved. Can this country music sensation repair precious relationships and prove herself worthy of the love she’s never felt she deserved?
