Publisher's Summary

After a decade-long absence, Allison Cramer returns to her childhood home to pay tribute to a former teacher. Years of excelling in all of her classes, and pursuing a doctorate at MIT should give her an abundance of confidence and pride. When she realizes that the insecure, 16-year-old bookworm she's tried to bury is still only skin-deep, she must take a hard look at herself. Coming back may open her eyes to what her heart has always wanted.
Shane Taggart has seen more tragedy before his 21st birthday than most people experience in a lifetime. Taking the responsibility of the world on his shoulders has become a way of life. There is no room for fun and socializing, until his head is turned by a vague high school memory with blonde hair and a pile of books.
Letting go of the past while being immersed in it may be the only way Alley and Shane can move forward. Leaving behind the childhood images of who they were, they discover that seeking individual dreams can be attained through the strength found in each other, and that love may be the greatest influence of all.

Wonderful Story

I loved this book. The author, Peggy L. Henderson brings up those insecurities most of us face sometime in our lives and I was drawn into the story. As always, Cody Roberts narrates this story with the true talent he has with his wonderful voice. I'm so glad this is book one as I'm looking forward to more of Peggy & Cody's books.

Another FANTASTIC BOOK by Peggy L. Henderson!!!!

Shan's Burden was a really great book to listen to, and Cody Roberts was once again FANTASTIC narrator!!!!! I thoroughly recommend this book to anybody who loves a story with wonderful characters. It keeps the listener thinking, guessing and truly rooting for Shane!
I am very ANXIOUS to listen to book two in this series, which is about Shane's brother Mason. Peggy L. Henderson really knows how to keep a reader or listener totally committed to the story of her characters lives. I loved this book!!!!!
