""This is a book to be savored."-Rachel Lynn Solomon. Jen Devon's Bend Toward the Sun is a gorgeous, emotional love story about taking unexpected paths, accepting loss, and finding strength in the transformative power of love. Rowan McKinnon believes love isn't real. Armed with a PhD in botany, two friends who accept her social quirkiness, and some occasional no-strings sex, she has everything she needs. What she doesn't share is that she hides deep wounds from the past-by an emotionally negligent mother, and by a fiancé who treated her like a pawn in a game. The only love she's ever known came from her grandmother Edie, who taught her to care for all things that grow. After a chance encounter at a future winery, Rowan is captivated-by the beauty of the land, the challenge of the vineyards' restoration, and by the warm and inviting family that plans to run it. They'll offer her a job. She'll eventually accept it. And try not to think about Harrison Brady. Harry Brady is a doctor. Was a doctor. An obstetrician profoundly struggling after the unexpected loss of a patient, Harry no longer believes he is capable of keeping people safe. Reeling from the loss and his crumbled four-year relationship, Harry leaves Los Angeles to spend time emotionally recuperating at his parents' new vineyard in Pennsylvania. He'll work to get the place ready to open, and try to pick up the pieces of his heart. Because if there's one thing Harry Brady knows how to do, it is love deeply, fiercely, with his whole heart. As soon as he meets Rowan McKinnon, sunlight begins to crack through the dark cloud smothering Harry's soul. He wants to explore the compelling pull between them. Rowan just wants to keep things casual-she's spent a lifetime protecting herself against feeling anything, for anyone. But even Rowan can feel their extraordinary connection tilting the axis of the world they both thought they understood. A moving, powerful novel about the ways love can irrevocably change your life, Bend Toward the Sun is a cinematic, unforgettable romance.
