Shakespeare-loving teacher Elliot Dunn has been unhappy living in the big city for a long time. He yearns for fresh air, visible stars, and stillness, but his relationship with divorce lawyer Mick Hudson keeps him from moving away.
When a dramatic event occurs in Elliot’s class, he’s shaken to his core and suddenly can’t stay anymore. He leaves his partner of two years behind and returns to the tiny town in the mountains where he grew up.
Living in a rented cabin in the woods, with only an owl for company, Elliot slowly regains his peace of mind. But being away from Mick is agonizing, and when a ghost from Elliot’s past pays him a visit, everything comes to a head.
Elliot is faced with a hard decision. Should he stay on the stress-free mountainside alone, or return to the hustle of the city and try to make a life with Mick?

What did the reviewers think?
This is a novella that will pull tears from you and make your heart ache. But all is made right so it makes you walk away with a smile.
This novella was nicely paced, well-written, with fully developed characters you root for until their HEA.
Very well written. Captures the feelings between Elliot and Mick beautifully. Cried several times at what these two guys go through though the book ends in a lovely HEA.
