Claire North understands how Angel Island sets the rhythm for her own serenity and ease. But a visitor has disturbed her peaceful heart. She knew him as a troubled boy who came to her soup kitchen in Boston, full of half-truths but brimming with trust. She wasn’t able to say good-bye to him then. Now, miraculously, a second chance to help him has come. Jamie Carter, now a young man, is more in need of Claire’s wisdom than ever. But when she suspects he is back to his old ways, her faith is truly put to the test... On the other side of the island, Avery Bishop is making a fresh start of her own, opening a new café.

If only Mike’s charming smile didn’t make her forget that he is her fiercest competitor. First Time in Paperback
