Pete MacDougal faces raising twin teenage sons and caring for an aging father alone. But that's not all. A high-school crush he never pursued comes back full force when Camille returns to the family ranch to grieve the loss of her husband. Camille knows she has become rude and insufferable; she's done so intentionally to keep people at arms' length. But her usual tactics don't seem to faze Pete or his two sons—they end up in her face more often than not. An innocent comment from the boys pushes Camille back into the world of the living and directly into Pete's arms. Jennifer Greene's WILD IN THE FIELD (3), about healing and the unstoppable human spirit, breaks out of the standard mold.
