Hope Caldwell looks like she has it all. She’s achieved her childhood dream of becoming a best-selling recording artist, and she’s living the glamorous life of a pop singer. But she’s learning the hard way that you can have everything and still feel empty inside.
Julie Aron is happy for her friend Hope, who was once both her best friend and her first love. While Julie struggles to fulfill her own dreams, she’s watched Hope’s rise to fame from afar, quietly celebrating her old friend’s victories. Julie can’t let her support of Hope show too much, though — if she does, she’ll only upset her wife, and they have enough problems as it is.
When tragedy shatters Hope’s spirit — and her body — she finds herself doing something she never thought she’d do: She heads back home to small town Georgia for the holidays. Julie is there to help Hope recover, but Hope’s healing leads to complicated feelings for both of them…

When Hannah Yoder left the Amish order at 17, she didn’t know what life had in store for her. She just knew she wanted to be free to be herself. Four years later, with the support of a loving family of choice, an adopted son entering full-on toddlerhood and a new bakery starting to do well, she felt like she had almost everything. Almost. After a previous relationship fizzled out over different life goals, she decided to focus on her son, her business and completing culinary school before she gave any more thought to finding someone new to share her life with.
