What's it about?

Logan Thibault is a vet who fought in Iraq and while he's not sure why he survived, but he suspects it has something to do with the photo he just happened to find of a girl and, while he's not entirely convinced that's true, he's still alive after many events that should have killed him and his best friend Victor is sure that it's because of the picture. But when he comes home to Colorado, things don't quit go back to normal and he eventually finds himself walking from Colorado to North Carolina in search of the girl in the picture, after all, he owes her his life.

Beth is a single mom with a somewhat rocky relationship with her ex. She lives with her grandmother and is helping to keep her grandmother's business going strong even when Nana can't. Together, they're just trying to make it in a small town.

But when the two of their paths crossed, they Beth and Logan may never be the same. They're forced to not just get to know each other better, but find greater understanding in their own lives and overcome the monsters lying wait in their pasts. But secrets have a tendency of getting in the way and ruining everything, even more then drastically then an ex husband with too much power, and an inflamed sense of entitlement.
