Image of A Hero to Come Home To (A Tallgrass Novel)

Pappano’s latest is a touching story about loss, love and acceptance. Tender to the core, her story is filled with heartwarming characters who you can’t help but fall in love with, and she tells their stories candidly and poignantly. The ending will simply melt your heart.

Thirteen months, two weeks, and three days: That’s the amount of time that has passed since Carly Lowry’s husband, Jeff, died in Afghanistan, and she can’t help but count even as she rebuilds her life. Staff Sergeant Dane Clark, new to Tallgrass, Okla., is rebuilding his life, too, after he lost part of his leg to an IED in a mission gone wrong. Carly gives Dane a reason to hope and Carly finds her heart opening to Dane. Yet, Dane hasn’t been completely open about his injury and worries that Carly may not truly accept him if she knew. (FOREVER, Jul., 400 pp., $5.99)
