If I hadn't fallen asleep.

If I hadn't gotten behind the wheel.

If I hadn't made a mistake.

For Monroe Blackwell, one small mistake has torn her family apart--leaving her empty and broken.

There's a hole in her heart that nothing can fill. That no one can fill.

And a summer in Louisiana with her grandma isn't going to change that...

Nathan Everets knows heartache firsthand when a car accident leaves his best friend in a coma.

And it's all his fault. He should be the one lying in the hospital.

The one who will never play guitar again.

He doesn't deserve forgiveness, and a court-appointed job at the Blackwell B&B isn't going to change that...

There's No Going Back

Captivating and hopeful, this achingly poignant novel brings together two lost souls

struggling with grief and guilt--looking for acceptance, so they can find forgiveness.
