Like Coming Home
Calasco, Book One
Ashley Clark has spent the last five years hiding from a wounded past, the boy she once loved, and the town she calls home. Now a first year teacher at a school for the Deaf in Colorado, Ashley is finally at a place where she can leave her past behind and take hold of the new life she has chosen for herself. But when a friend’s sudden death calls her home, she is forced to remember everything she worked so hard to forget… and face the man she never expected to see again.
Jake Rawlins once dreamt of playing professional baseball… but he’s learned the hard way that the dreams of youth don’t always withstand the test of time. With his cousin’s upcoming wedding–and seemingly perfect life–a constant reminder of what Jake doesn’t have, he can’t help but wonder how his choices long ago have affected his life today. Then she returns, the girl who had his heart when he was twelve… and stole it with her sudden disappearance five years before.
