Patrick Thompson is all city, all the time. A young doctor, once full of passion, now disillusioned by the practice, he sets off across the country, intent on a small breather before a fresh start.
Ivy Lang loves the country way. So much so that she’s created a place where others can experience her ideas of the fundamentals for both mind and body. The life is perfect for her, carefully cultivated by her own hands.
He’s waiting for something to inspire him.
She finds inspiration all around her.
A chance meeting turns their world upside down, and it’s up to them to create something beautiful.
Patrick is hoping a cross country drive will help relax him before he get to his new job in New York. As a doctor he has seen so much tragedy that he's forgotten about his bedside manner. Coming up to a roadside stand in his shiny luxury car, in his spiffy loafers he doesn't know his entire world will chance with one meeting.
Life in the city destroyed her family, at least in her mind. Coming into the country and changing her life so completely has given her a new lease on life and she loves sharing that with others. Ivy is sassy and a bit of a smarty pants, but on her it looks good. She is also loving and caring to all those around her.
Patrick might have been a bit lost but after finding Ivy he begins to see life in a new way. He has a thirst for knowledge and is always asking questions, which made Ivy perfect for him because she loved answering them.
The two might have an interesting start, but it was the journey to the end that made the story so amazing. The way it was written makes you wanna go out and try new things, but also helps you see what is really important in life as well. Great read!
MEET THE AUTHOR
CM Foss is a hopeless romantic with a love for the written word. When she was little, her mom would ration her books so she wouldn't go through them too quickly. It didn't matter, she would just re-read. She's always been an avid equestrian, competing in the top levels of Three Day Eventing by age seventeen. CM now resides in Northern Virginia with her husband and kids where they own and operate their own equestrian business, as well as raising grass-fed, sustainable meats. She doesn't have this thing people call "free time", but she does spent a weird amount of time writing, reading, playing with her kids, milking goats, and drinking wine, while avoiding bananas at all costs. Titles by CM Foss include Shiver, Swoon, City Beautiful, and Jock.
