Adam Matthews is on the run from his past life and abusive fiancée.

Flying across the country in his bid to escape, Adam gets stuck in the small town of Bay Grove Point in Maine with a population of only 800 people. 

As he waits for the next bus out of town, Adam is oddly drawn to the tight knit community, especially that of the Spencer family who are fighting their own grief, and a brother that must care for his two nephews. 

When the bus comes, Adam must make a decision to either stay and make a life for himself or leave.  But when a stranger from Adam's past arrives and starts asking questions, Adam's chance of a new life is put in danger.

Chicago. Mention Illinois and they'll be like, "You're from Chicago?"
That’s not fair, dirty bastard is at fault, not the guy who helped a person?!
I live in Maine so I feel as if it's my job to read this book

I read about a Spanish thingy in class and it said 2.5 children. I was thinking, and I quote, "they have half a child? How dare  they cut them in half without me! Ugh. People  these days." My thoughts had almost nothing to do with 2.5 children!! 😂😂
I just imagined a family with half a kid and I should not be laughing this hard
