Eternity Springs has grown up, can Lori and Chase find peace in themselves and find each other again?

Six years ago, Chase Timberlake bought an engagement ring for his high school sweetheart Lori Reese. happened. Chase’s adventure photography career took off, Lori’s dream of getting into veterinary school came true, and their happily ever after never came to pass.
When Chase’s jet-setting life takes a tragic turn, he returns to Eternity Springs a damaged man. Who better to help mend his spirit than the woman who has dedicated her life to healing broken wings? Long summer days spent together rekindles the love that never died and Chase dares to dream of a future he’d thought lost.But Lori can’t help but wonder whether this high-flying man really wants a small-town girl with roots sunk deep into the Colorado Rockies. Can she and Chase turn back the hands of time and pick up where they left off—and give forever a chance?

We have watched Chase and Lori grow up throughout the Eternity Springs series, and I cannot believe they are adults now! I'm feeling kind of old. I've read the series since the first book came out and to this day, I still adore it.

Chase and Lori were in love as teenagers and thought they could conquer all. But Lori is extremely focused on her studies to become a veterinarian and Chase wants to roam the world. At some point, they grew apart. When Chase's engagement was announced, Lori didn't know how to feel. But then Chase and his fiance delayed their wedding to go on a work related trip. Tragedy struck and Chase was eluding terrorists at the same time two of his coworkers were being murdered by them. He is rescued but comes home completely changed. He can't pick up a camera, and the camera has been his true love on his adventures, and also what pays the bills. 

Chase retreats into the yurt in the forest and no one can get him to come out of his shell. His family appeals to Lori, as they had been so incredibly close once upon a time. Lori drives up the mountain and drops a foster puppy at his door step with supplies, and then takes off. 
What the heck is Chase going to do with a puppy! He can't even take care of himself! But taking care of Captain brings a change to Chase.  Then Chase starts helping at a camp for children who have suffered a deep loss, and the kids worm their way into his hearts. Chase begins to heal, but can he and Lori find their way back to each other?

Ms March has created a world that we can fall into and wish we could move to. I wish I could sit on the bank and fish in the stream that runs by Angel's Rest, go to the Yellow Kitchen for dinner, and take my dogs to Doc Lori for checkups. I love to see the families we read about before having babies and growing. I hope the series continues to grow and we see our Angel's Rest family for a long time to come.
