She changed houses into homes and loneliness into love
Sage McKenna had a unique reputation in her little South Carolina town. People called upon her when their houses needed remodeling or repairs, because she could do the jobs better than anyone. But people also called upon her when they needed a home, and Sage and her daughter had adopted a family that now included a sister and brother, parents and even a grandfather. People, Sage believed, needed permanence--homes that would last, bonds that would endure.
Adam Hracek said he was different--he never stayed long in one place and never wanted to. Sage listened to his warning, but her heart paid no heed.
