On the run from her abusive husband, Mila Jones flees Minneapolis for the safety and serenity of Butternut Lake. Ready to forge a new life, Mila's position as home health aide to Reid Ford is more than a job. It's a chance at a fresh start. Though her sullen patient seems determined to make her quit, she refuses to give up on him. Haunted by the car accident that nearly killed him, Reid retreats to his brother's cabin on Butternut Lake and lashes out at anyone who tries to help. Reid wishes Mila would just go away... until he notices the strength, and the secrets, behind her sad, brown eyes. Against all odds, Mila slowly draws Reid out. Soon they form a tentative, yet increasingly deeper, bond as Mila lowers her guard and begins to trust again, and Reid learns how to let this woman who has managed to crack through his protective shell into his life. While the seemingly endless days of summer unfold, Reid and Mila take the first steps to healing as they discover love can be more than just a dream.

I really loved this sweet story. The only shortcoming was the obvious plot -- knew how it would end, knew what would happen to everyone, and the author told you obvious conclusions that you had already figured out on your own. Really nice character development and well done memories of her childhood.

Mila has left her life looking for refuge. Reid’s life was shattered, and his new life is not to his liking. Together, they tentatively begin to re-engage with the world.

A okay read, but whomever proofed this or edited it--poor job. On more than occasion there was a person called different names on the same page. Kind of confusing and had to go back and re read because it threw me off
