When Larkin Maybie buries her mother in the foothills of Appalachia, she is left all alone. Her only inheritance? A crazy aunt, a mountain of debt, and a run-down, secluded cabin left by a mysterious benefactor. While Larkin thinks an escape to a cabin miles from anything familiar might be exactly what she needs, the quick answer to her problems only leaves her with more questions… Questions concerning her true identity.
As Larkin searches for her link to the Lewandowski Estate, she begins to accept the kindness of strangers on Presque Isle and the affection of professional baseball player, Ketch Devine. Charged with caring for the cabin’s honey bees and haunted by past choices, Larkin struggles to move forward in a new direction and is running out of time. With summer and baseball season coming to an end, she must decide: what is the value of true love?
Down the steep slope of the ravine, the barges were loaded with coal. Their lights danced on the ceiling of every room. The shadows of the trees which clung to the ridge’s rocky slope looked like long fingers waving.
I stood in the grand foyer, my dusty flip-flops a stark contrast to the smooth limestone floors, and Calvin excused himself for a moment. I peered around the corner, hoping to spy a comfy bed with a turn down service and well wishes for a good night’s rest.
Calvin emerged from a wine cellar with a couple glasses and a bottle. There’s no rest for the weary.
“Get comfortable, La-La,” Calvin cooed and poured generous glasses for us both and undid his bowtie.
Chills went up my spine. Hillbilly folklore would say someone was walking on my future grave, but I’m only partially superstitious and completely familiar with male intentions.
