Loss, pain, guilt…
Those are the emotions Ben Carpenter feels as the lone survivor of a terrible night, three years before, where fate was so unkind.
On a quest to forget, aware of only one thing—overwhelming misery—he submerses himself into running Fairfax, the pub he and his wife had once planned on opening together, and his side gig as a volunteer firefighter.
Resolved to a life of loneliness, Ben is sideswiped when envy takes hold after he’s asked to stand as Best Man at his best friend’s wedding.
Before he can deal with the idea of opening up to love again, tragedy strikes…just not for Ben this time.
As secrets to his wife’s betrayal come to light, Ben is faced with the reality that an opportunity to heal stares him straight in the face—albeit, in the form of Hannah.
Bonded by their similar losses, Ben begins to wonder.
Is there really such a thing as second chances?
