The Grown-Up Lives of Runaways

Home is an aroma, a touch, the feel of certain weather. At some point many make the journey away from home to find their way in the world. For Abigail Finley, home is a little house tucked behind willows on top of a hill in Maine. For the last few years, she has bounced from state to state, always dreaming of buying that little house where she was raised. Abigail is a serious sort of person who likes numbers and schedules. She would rather plan a good thing than have it happen. Weeks from finishing her master’s degree in Indianapolis, she has her life all planned out. A chance meeting with a charming stranger alters the trajectory of her life forever.
