World-renowned violinist Stani Moss and country-bred Emily Haynes have bridged the distance between their worlds and fallen in love, but neither is prepared for what awaits them on the winding road to happily-ever-after.
Unexpectedly thrust into the midst of Stani's celebrity lifestyle, Emily attempts to adapt to the rigors of touring and a side of Stani she's never seen. While striving to win acceptance from those closest to him, she must also learn to meet the needs of the man she loves and remain true to herself. The months they spend together in his world are her first glimpse of what life as the wife of Stani Moss will be, challenging, chaotic, and filled with passion and romance.
Finally free from the demands of his career, at least for a few weeks, Stani is eager to learn more about the simple life he dreams of sharing with the girl who first saved him and now loves him, but he quickly realizes that simple is not necessarily what it seems. When tragedy is narrowly escaped, he stays on in the place he hopes to one day call home to find himself confronted with painful revelations from the past and unexpected threats to the future. What he discovers at Valley Rise will open his eyes to the reality of a lifetime with the woman he loves and prepare him to join the community that surrounds and supports her.
