Why did their differences matter so much?

Link Whitman has settled into the role of bachelor without ever
intending to. Now he’s stuck in a dead-end job and, as the next Whitman
wedding fast approaches, he is the last one standing. The pressure from
his sisters’ efforts to play matchmaker is getting hard to bear as Link
pulls extra shifts at work, and helps his parents at the Chicory Inn.

All her life, Shayla Michaels has felt as if she straddled two worlds.
Her mother's white family labeled her African American father with names
Shayla didn't repeat in polite––well, in any company. Her father’s
family disapproved as well, though they eventually embraced Shayla as
their own. After the death of her mother, and her brother Jerry’s
incarceration, life has left Shayla's father bitter, her niece, Portia,
an orphan, and Shayla responsible for them all. She knows God loves them
all, but why couldn't people accept each other for what was on the
inside? For their hearts?

Everything changes one icy morning when a child runs into the street and
Link nearly hits her with his pickup. Soon he is falling in love with
the little girl’s aunt, Shayla, the beautiful woman who runs Coffee’s
On, the bakery in Langhorne. Can Shayla and Link overcome society’s view
of their differences and find true love? Is there hope of changing the
sometimes-ugly world around them into something better for them all?
