Outskirts Press. 2009

On the day before his high school graduation, Matt Madsen gets caught in an elaborate trap set by his girlfriend's mother, Carolyn Van Scoy. Accused of a scandalous crime, Matt is forced to leave Holly Hill, Illinois, and never have contact with Paige Van Scoy, the young woman he's helplessly in love with.

Ten years pass and Matt reluctantly returns to Holly Hill to visit his dying grandmother. In the days that follow, Matt is entrusted with a tale of love and patience. The year was 1901, and two young German immigrants have dreams of escaping their lives of isolation and servitude to others. A careless mistake by an old matchmaker proves that in love, there are no mistakes. Encouraged by his grandmother's story, Matt sets off to prove his innocence and right the wrongs of the past.

With Paige's wedding to another man days away, Carolyn Van Scoy is desperate to keep Matt and Paige apart, and she'll do whatever it takes. Holly Hill will take you on a roller coaster of twists and turns as Matt unravels the lies and betrayals of the past in search of a future with the woman he loves.
