Fresh horizons and a chance to make a difference–that’s all that burned-out Kaya Walsh wants when she leaves behind ten years of teaching in urban schools. Small town Indiana offers crisp autumn days she won’t dread. When Kaya meets Coach Ricki McGlinn she immediately realizes she might look forward to the long winter nights too.
Ricki can’t deny that she wants to run a few plays with the fiery, appealing Kaya, but her heart remembers what lies at the end of the field: nothing but grief and loss. Never again.
Even with friends Toni Davis and Rynn Callahan to advise her, can Kaya find the strength to play the ultimate game for Ricki’s heart?
