How do you persevere when you have no more will to fight?

Jennifer and Chad Taylor had dreamed of opening a coffee and cocoa shop since before they said, “I do.” When Chad is sent to prison for murder despite claiming innocence, that dream—along with their family—is shattered.

After years of fighting for Chad’s release, Jennifer finally breaks free from her shame, anger, and hopelessness, and forges ahead with the dream the two of them once shared. With the help of their college-aged twins, she begins to move forward.

Without Chad.

When their lawyer arrives with news of evidence that may prove Chad’s innocence, a strange mixture of emotions overtakes her. Does she want Chad to return home? He isn’t the same man he once was, and she certainly isn’t the same woman. She’s worked hard to piece the remnants of their family back together, and his coming home could fracture the family once again.

It all comes down to one question. She loves her husband enough to fight for his release from prison, but does she love him enough to fight for their marriage?

“Okay, fine. I’ll call, but she’ll most likely say no.”

“Thank you.” Chloe kissed Jenn on the cheek then hurried back to the storefront.

Jason harrumphed. “She’s just gonna be let down, and then she’ll pout for the next month.” Her too-mature-for-his-age son was always the voice of reason.

“You do realize”—Jenn’s finger hovered over her phone’s keypad—“that if I don’t call the realtor, Chloe will spend the next month sulking.”

“There is that.”

“So, why not? That’s what today is about. We’re breaking free, remember?”

“I s’pose.” He kicked at the concrete sidewalk that had more weeds growing through it than concrete.

“I’ll call the realtor, we’ll drive around a bit more, check out a house or two on the Open House Tour, then grab some ice cream.”

He snorted. “Not from this town.”

Too true. Jenn swept an arm over her forehead, wiping away perspiration as she looked up and down the street. A constant stream of cars whizzed past going much faster than the thirty-mile-an-hour sign instructed. Children played in a park across the road. Maybe there were no stores or cafés, but it was a growing area. It would benefit from a coffee shop, wouldn’t it?
