Forty-three and jobless, Cynthia Marshall finds herself back in the last place she’d expected—Madison Island, GA. Her small hometown holds the ghosts of choices past, from unresolved family issues to the boy turned man she left behind over two decades ago.
Converting her beloved aunt’s Victorian into a B&B should be her main focus, but having to work closely with her ex cracks the foundation of her carefully laid plans.
Marcel Lewis owns the only construction company on the island. He never quite got over the abrupt departure of the first woman he ever loved. Though years have passed, feelings have remained. But some wounds have yet to heal, and he wants answers.
As the renovation progresses, the walls of her old house aren’t the only ones tumbling down. However, Cynthia and Marcel can’t construct a future without answering for decisions of the past.

Of all the groups to emerge during the folk era of the 1960’s, first the Chad Mitchell Trio and later The Mitchell Trio were unequivocally the best. Their complex harmonies, sense of comedic timing and stage presence were unique to the folk movement. They didn’t enjoy the commercial success of other groups because their material made political and social statements that radio and television refused to play. They were wildly popular, though, on college campuses throughout the country during this turbulent time and fostered political and social awareness among thousands of young men and women as they faced the challenging era ahead.
But as Mike, Chad and Joe Frazier raced along a frantic treadmill of rehearsals, recording sessions, nightclubs and concerts, Mike and Chad began to realize the demand for musical perfection was the only thing they had in common. Their personalities were and remain polar opposites. When Chad left in 1965, neither mourned the parting. John Denver replaced Chad. Two years later, Joe’s demons caught up to him forcing Mike and John to fire Joe.
When folk reunions became popular, fans and folk historians agreed that The Trio was the one group that would never take the stage again. Their schism was just too great.
Mike and Chad and Joe hadn’t spoken in twenty years. Then came a call. I will if he will. Their mentor and music director Milt Okun worried they were making a mistake. They couldn’t possibly be as good as their fans remembered.
They were. Mike and Chad kept their day jobs, and their distance. But once again, they shared the music.
