The end can be the beginning..
Miranda Dolan's world has been destroyed. Shattered, she retreats to the isolation of a rented cottage in a strange California town, searching for the peace that will make her forget her past.
But the past won't stay buried for long, and Miranada must face the future with every sunrise. Just when she is nearly defeated by her haunting memories, Adam Kirkpatric enters her life. Blinded by pain, she is too stunned to recognize that he offers something she's forgotten exists- hope. Little by little, Adam's tender gifts of love and compassion help her heal, and Miranda begins to understand- that even in her darkest hours, love has the power to light the way out of the past and into tomorrow.

Handyman Adam Kirkpatric has a habit of picking up strays, but pulling a suicidal woman from the Pacific Ocean is pretty far out there, even for him. Although the woman is secretive, closed up, and down right rude, Adam is intrigued. Never in his life has he seen such pain behind such a lovely face. Miranda Dolan has no intention of getting close to another human being again. Ever. In fact, she fled a successful law practice in Denver to hide in the rolling hills of the Northern California coast. After the pain she's endured, all she wants is to die. But now her rescuer refuses to leave her alone. He stops by her house, day after day, despite her cold receptions, reminding her of the loneliness she's imposed on herself. Too bad he's so unsuitable. He's too young, too eager, and definitely too unprofessional for Miranda, even if she did want to let him into her life. With patience and tenderness, Adam slowly chips away at the stone wall Miranda has built around her soul, and as Miranda learns to let him in, she learns to live again. Until Adam gets too close to the one horrible secret that ruined her life forever.A heart-tugging story about the redemptive power of love! Georgia Bockoven weaves a tale where hope grows stronger stitch by stitch, word by word! If you enjoy a huggable, sensitive, sexy hero, Far From Home is for you! Georgia Bockoven does an amazing job drawing us into the tortured, lonely, and ultimately hopeful world of life after grief!
