Beloved for novels that "deliver laughter, tears, and so much joy" (Romantic Times), JoAnn Ross brings another of Coldwater Cove's citizens to life in this poignant tale of family and friendship, loyalty and loss, courage and suffering. Most of all, this is a story of love's miraculous powers.
Erin O'Halloran has witnessed the atrocities of war firsthand. But when she travels to Western Ireland to attempt to save a dying friend and mentor, she faces her greatest challenge yet. And when she happens to meet the love of her life, matters become unexpectedly complicated.
After spending years capturing war's horrors in his camera lens, photojournalist Michael Joyce escapes to his Irish family's farm, yearning to shut out the world. But fate has other plans for him -- including unbidden feelings for Dr. O'Halloran and the unexpected rewards of fatherhood.
Surrounded by Ireland's magic, Erin and Michael begin to see nightmares replaced by dreams. But it will take more than one miracle before they discover the answers to their deepest questions?the ones they had never dared ask.
JoAnn Ross is a favorite the world over. She is a recipient of numerous writing awards, including being named Storyteller of the Year by Romantic Times, and her work has been excerpted in Cosmopolitan and featured by the Doubleday and Literary Guild book clubs.
A popular conference speaker, she lives with her husband and dog -- Allie, the Wonder-Hiker -- in eastern Tennessee, where she receives creative inspiration from her view of the Great Smoky Mountains. She is currently at work on Legends Lake, her next novel for Pocket Books.
