Holly ended things to give him a better life, but she was the future he’d always dreamed of.

Eight years have passed since Holly last saw her high school sweetheart, Josh. Now the wedding of Josh’s best friend has brought him back to Martinsburg, Texas.  His duties as best man and Holly's as the church's volunteer wedding coordinator link them together.  As they work behind the scenes to plan a beautiful November wedding for their friends, they're forced to confront painful reminders of what might have been.

Holly broke up with Josh all those years ago in an attempt to ensure his future success. However, she never told him the true reason behind her actions and now must decide whether to keep her secret hidden.  She's terrified of letting herself fall for him because she barely managed to piece her life back together after losing him the last time.

Not a day's gone by since Josh parted from Holly that he hasn't thought about her.  The pain of the past eight years has been too much to bear and he doesn't want to make himself vulnerable to her again. But the more time he spends with her, the harder it is to deny the love he still has for her.

Will Josh and Holly risk their hearts on the hope that God's timing really can be best?

Holly and Josh were high school sweethearts. When Josh decided to go to MIT, Holly broke it off with him and hasn’t seen him since. Eight years go by and now Josh is back in town for a friend’s wedding. Holly never stopped loving Josh, so this looked like a good point where Holly could see if there is something still between them. The unique thing about this story is that it is told by both Holly’s point of view and Josh’s point of view. This story is really cute and I really liked the characters. I think Holly and Josh were fantastic and they make such a great couple. Wade’s writing is fantastic, no one would know this was a novella except the fact that it is short because Wade really explains the story and the characters well. I think it was very nicely done.
