1960, Appalachia. Owen Campbell is a man with secrets. He keeps to himself, finding isolation less painful than trying to fit in. He doesn’t need a woman in his life… Especially his lovely, intriguing neighbor Sarah, newly returned from college, whom he just caught trespassing on his land…
Despite all that, Owen is drawn to her against his better judgment – he yearns for Sarah, and never mind the risk to his heart.
But as each they start falling, family tragedies unfold, and misunderstandings force them apart. Will the secrets and heartache come between them, like the line that separates their mountain homes? Or will they find the courage to reach for a chance at a once-in-a-lifetime love?
