She works at the church in women’s ministry and that fills a fair bit of her time. She also has a support system of friends in town. She’s had a tough time of moving on since her husband died. However that was years ago and Evie is still a young widow. Enter Jack Vale who has come to Bannister Falls to take care of his brother’s family.
As you might expect, Jack and Evie are drawn together. But the complications from Jack’s troubled family post a wedge between the Jack and Evie.
