"Maybe we live our lives constantly becoming and rebecoming. Maybe we're always in the process of metamorphosing into something new."
In her journal, writer Piper George notes the change of seasons. Each entry marks the passage of time since she became a teen mother and put her baby up for adoption. Her words flow together, painting a picture of loss, hope, and enduring love for the daughter she's never forgotten. But one autumn, a new presence appears in its pages and in her life: her neighbor, Edward "Ned" Chesterfield.
As winter thaws to spring, Piper and Ned develop a friendship that could be something more... if only Piper would open her heart. But the loss of her daughter has irrevocably shaped her life. And having given so much of herself away, she's not sure if she can give Ned all that he deserves. But with him at her side, Piper just might learn that a heart's love is never truly lost.
