Since Theadora (Thea) Jacqueline Montgomery can remember she's been in love with her friend Gabriel DuPont, Gabe for short. She overlooked his, and everyone's quirks in North Point, like running for miles without being winded and their weird acute sense of smell. She shrugged it all off because whenever she looked into his jade green eyes all she saw was the person she loved. After being by his side, for eight years, he finally returns her affection.
To Thea her life is perfect until her 16th birthday and her world shifts leaving her clinging to Gabe. Lost and confused she moves on with her life only for deception to break what's left of her heart. Overwhelmed by the hurt and betrayal she leaves her hometown for Columbia College in Chicago.
Fast forward four years... Tragedy strikes in three times in Theaâ€™s young life and sends her know choice but to run back to the quiet of her home town with her three year old son. Determined to create a better life for Noah and herself she plans to reopen her parent's small business.
But what will she do when she finds out why the love of her life didnâ€™t come after her? How will he react when he returns with his own secrets and lies wanting to spend time with the son he had no idea he had? And what caused Thea to run back to her hometown?
