This had been on my TBR
pile mountain for too long.
Tess has come home, pressured by her two sisters to help their aged mother following a hip operation. Tess leaves behind, albeit, temporarily, her life as a singer in Nashville. Struggling to adapt, Tess feels uncomfortable with the amount of time, her mother’s neighbour, Kevin spends with her mother. Worse still he was the “nerd” at school and suffered at the hands of Tess.
Tess takes a shine to Kevin’s daughter Casey who is a wonderful singer. Together they spend time co-writing a song and when Tess offers to take Casey to Nashville so they can record the song, Kevin agreeds.
This is a wonderfully gentle story of remembering our roots, friends and love.
