But when they arrive back home at the same bus station on the same day, they discover some old flames aren't put out so easily. Can they move past the forces that pulled them apart ten years ago, or are some hurts too much to overcome? Second-Chance Love-Benjamin and Lora Beth both lost spouses not long into their young marriages and connect over letters, exchanging recipes and commiseration as their now-grown children try to coddle them. They're only in their forties, for heaven's sake! The letters quickly reveal a deep friendship . . . or could it be more? When you've already had a great love, how do you learn to fall in love again?
