Are the walls around her heart more daunting than the other barriers separating her from the man she married?

Emmalyn Ross never thought a person could feel this alone. Sustaining a
marriage with a man who’s not by her side is no easy task, especially
since her husband currently resides behind impenetrable prison walls.
His actions stole her heart’s desire and gave their relationship a
court-mandated five-year time-out. What didn’t fall apart that night
fell apart in the intervening years.

Now, on a self-imposed exile
to Madeline Island—one of the Apostle Islands of Lake Superior—Emmalyn
starts rehabbing an old hunting cottage they’d purchased when life made
sense. Restoring it may put a roof over her head, but a home needs more
than a roof and walls, just as a marriage needs more than vows and a
license. With only a handful of months before her husband is released,
Emmalyn must figure out if and how they can ever be a couple again. And
his silence isn’t helping.
