After a painful split from her boyfriend, twenty-something Sophie Winters leaves her hometown of Boston to start fresh in the small, farm town of New Haven, Ohio. She finds a charming Bungalow to rent situated on the land of the massive Waverly farm, not too far from the high school where she is soon starting her new career as a high school English teacher.

Sophie makes instant friends with Joan and Jake, the owners of the Waverly farm, while their nineteen year-old son, Josh, forms an instant attraction to Sophie. What Sophie continually shrugs off as an innocent crush gradually develops into an irresistible connection that neither Sophie nor Josh can ignore. With family, friendships, and futures on the line, however, Sophie must confront buried hurts and unexpected decisions that might change her life forever. Will Sophie Surrender?
