In Hollister, there is peace.
In Hollister, South Dakota, where the vast ranching terrain meets the sky, Tegan Wells loves his job as the manager of the town's bustling stockyard. His life, rooted in the rhythms of this small town, is about to be upended by the return of Dr. Kate Johnson, an Army veterinarian who left Hollister for the far-flung corners of the world.
Returning to Hollister, there is heartache.
Kate, leaving the Army and the profession she loves, returns to Hollister with a heart heavy with loss. Her new assignment is to mend the broken pieces of her family, reeling from the tragic loss of her sister-in-law. A friend at the Atlanta USO gives her the advice she needs as she steps into the role of a surrogate mother for her niece and nephew. Kate finds the familiar faces and people of Hollister both comforting and filled with echoes of her past.
Life in Hollister is so much more than expected.
Tegan and Kate's paths cross, reigniting a spark that had lain dormant since their high school days. Romance blossoms in the most unexpected of places. But not all is calm in Hollister. A series of unexplained events at the stockyard casts a shadow over the town. Missing livestock, mysterious footprints, and whispered suspicions begin to disturb the peace and threaten to unravel the fabric of this close-knit community. In this tale of love, loss, and suspense, Tegan and Kate’s story captures small-town life, the strength of coming home, and the power of a love that can weather any storm.
