Unable to say no when others need her, Talia Sampson took on her deceased aunt’s advice column, a worn-out Victorian home, and the care of her special needs niece, Bianca. The last thing Talia needs is a handyman who creates a flutter in her heart.
Enter new veteran, Ben Tanner, who shows up on her doorstep. Lost for many years within the foster system, and broken from the battlefield, he wonders where home truly is. At the address the Welcome Home veteran’s program gave him, a frosty welcome from homeowner, Talia, isn’t what he expected. But with his skill set, he just might have something to offer her for a few of nights of lodging.
Talia and Ben discover two Sampson family heirlooms in the garage. Talia treasures the story the forgotten journal tells, but she secretly fears what finding the hot-air balloon could mean. Ben is intrigued by the ancient balloon and is intent on restoring it for her. Between a secret that shatters his trust and Talia’s self-doubt, it may take more than a leap of faith and going airborne in an antique balloon to overcome what keeps them apart and find a second chance at love.
