FROM THE BOOK JACKET: In the small, sleepy town of Moab, Florida, folks live for ice cream socials, Jackie Robinson, and the local papers weekly gossip column. For decades, Sheriff Winston Browne has watched over Moab with a generous eye, and by now hes used to handling the daily dramas that keep life interesting for Moabs quirky residents. But just after Winston receives some terrible, life-altering news, a feisty little girl with mysterious origins shows up in his best friends henhouse. Suddenly Winston has a child in desperate need of protection—as well as a secret of his own to keep.
With the help of Moabs goodhearted townsfolk, the humble and well-meaning Winston Browne still has some heroic things to do. He finds romance, family, and love in unexpected places.
