Brooklyn Myers escaped her broken home and her embittered, unloving father by eloping to Reno at the age of 17. But when she was pregnant with their first child, her husband abandoned her as well. Not welcome back home in Thunder Creek, Brooklyn stayed in Reno and raised her daughter, Alycia, on her own, doing her best to make sure Alycia never knew the heartache and rejection Brooklyn herself had known.
When her estranged husband, Chad Hallston dies, he leaves the family home in Thunder Creek to his daughter. Believing it is the best way to give her daughter a stable home, Brooklyn does what she thought she would never do. She goes home to the orchard and wine country of Southwest Idaho. There, she encounters Chad's best friend, Derek Johnson, a part-time sheriff's deputy who also owns an organic produce farm next door. Derek was never a fan of former bad girl Brooklyn Myers, but he made a promise to his dying friend that he would be the father to Alycia that Chad had never been.
Although Derek and Brooklyn get off to a bumpy start, he and Alycia quickly form a bond. And soon Derek realizes that he wants Brooklyn to trust him too...even knowing that her trust won't come easily. And then he realizes he wants even more than her trust. He wants to win her love.
While Brooklyn may be tempted to give her heart to Derek, risking her daughter's happiness is another story. Will Brooklyn hold on to her self-reliance for dear life, or will she come to understand that the greatest gift she can give her daughter is showing her how to love and trust others?

Wonderful Christian book
I loved this book. It is a book about a mother and daughter who have faced many difficulties in their lives. Yet the mom has her faith in God...how He provides for them. There are lots of laughs...worries...and ending with sweet love story. Hope I have not given too much away. ..there is a law officer..normal teenager and other characters as well. If you are looking for a clean sweet story this is the book for you. I will be looking for more books by this author.
