Deep in the Shenandoah Valley, the present and the past are as restless as the river mists. And when they collide, the heart is the only compass pointing home. For nurse Ginger Martin, her late husband’s farm is both a treasured legacy and the harbinger of an uncertain future. Since he was recently killed in Iraq, every day is fraught with grief that won’t abate. Keeping the farm going and nourishing her children’s hopes without him seems as impossible as having dreams for the future—or going back into the past. By a curious coincidence, a stranger appears in Ginger’s life, always showing up to help in unexpected and much-needed ways. He says he’s a soldier, lost and trying to make his way home, but Ginger understands that Samuel is a kindred spirit, longing to repair a life interrupted. The challenges of their hopes and longings will test who they really are in the most heartbreaking of ways. And only by coming to terms with their losses and the necessity of change will Ginger and Samuel be able to each make a future of their own—and discover at last where their true home lies.

Summary

Deep in the Shenandoah Valley, the present and the past are as restless as the river mists. And when they collide, the heart is the only compass pointing home.

For nurse Ginger Martin, her late husband’s farm is both a treasured legacy and the harbinger of an uncertain future. Since he was recently killed in Iraq, every day is fraught with grief that won’t abate. Keeping the farm going and nourishing her children’s hopes without him seems as impossible as having dreams for the future—or going back into the past.

By a curious coincidence, a stranger appears in Ginger’s life, always showing up to help in unexpected and much-needed ways. He says he’s a soldier, lost and trying to make his way home, but Ginger understands that Samuel is a kindred spirit, longing to repair a life interrupted. The challenges of their hopes and longings will test who they really are in the most heartbreaking of ways. And only by coming to terms with their losses and the necessity of change will Ginger and Samuel be able to each make a future of their own—and discover at last where their true home lies.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“If you could seamlessly blend the movie Field of Dreams with Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife and season liberally with John Jakes’ North and South, you might find yourself with this unputdownable book. Dickson deftly draws the humanity out of two wars in which the US has seen many horrors and places Ginger’s story against a backdrop that blends scars from the two. With small, intimate details, Dickson brings even secondary characters to life. Never maudlin, Ginger’s pain will resonate and stick with readers who will want to move to a farm—with horse-drawn plows—and hug each and every one in Ginger’s circle.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“Dickson, whose first novel, Casting Off, was a top entry for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award, seamlessly blends past and present in this deeply satisfying novel of a family coming together after a devastating loss, finding strength in the most unexpected of places, and discovering exactly where they truly belong.” Booklist

Author Bio: Nicole R. Dickson

Nicole R. Dickson, author of the novels Casting Off and Here and Again, currently resides in North Carolina with her daughter, two dogs, and an unforgiving yard of acorns. When not attending to her other responsibilities, she can be found in some far corner of the library buried in history, racing the ghosts in her local Revolutionary War battleground, or discussing the clutter of leaves with the lightning bugs in the forest of her backyard.
