In the time since that fateful night, he’d only seen her once and had only managed to make the situation even worse.

He is presented with a choice that forces him to confront the painful memories of his youth and his many regrets with Wren.Like it or not, his father's last, hard lesson, will demand Caleb deal with his long denied emotions for Wren, or let go of her forever.
