When the flood of a century strikes Aria’s hometown, an alienated Caleb is all that stands between her and catastrophic loss.
Caleb followed her into the clinic, nothing with approval that it seemed clean and well kept. A big yellow cat lay in the sun on a deep windowsill. The staff smiled at him with friendliness too. Warmth spread throughout his veins. After a dreadful start in life, Peaches had gotten lucky.
