Synopsis: Hugh Penders has been stuck in neutral for nearly a decade since his brother Chase died in a car accident. He carries with him two secrets that he has never been able to share with anyone: that he believes he might have been able to prevent the accident, and that he was deeply in love with Chase's girlfriend, Iris.

Review: This was a heartwarming story of love, loss, renewal, and forgiveness. I really enjoyed reading Iris and Hugh's story and felt the writing just flowed perfectly off the pages. I have never really liked books that keep jumping back and forth from one time period to another because it gets confusing but Mr.Baron has done a remarkable job of making the transition work in this book.

I recommend this book to anybody that is searching for something a little more than just your ordinary love story.
