**I received an ARC in exchange for my honest opinion**
This story takes Jane, the heroine, on a trek to find a reclusive author whom she thinks will save her job by getting the publishing rights and the rest of the story which has fallen in her hands. The journey forces her to face her past in Appalachia, the person she's become, and finding the person she wants to be. Somewhere along the way, she finds peace, becomes a mother figure to a sister and a young girl, and finds the possibility of love for her future.
Unearthing secrets from Jane's past, the past of others, and the trail of a story are interwoven in a beautifully told story by Lisa Wingate. This story touched my heart in so many ways.,
