Her only escape is Over the Ivy Wall...
Clara Pendleton is a prisoner in her home. Always searching for new places to hide from her uncle, whose drunken attention terrifies and confuses her, she finds a tiny clearing in the back of the property near a disintegrating section of the ivy-covered wall that surrounds the estate.
Gaven Bridge has been sent to Clearwater to live with his Uncle Daniel. Never fitting in, he doesn’t believe he’ll ever meet anyone who understands him. But when he goes out for a walk in the woods, he happens upon a young lady sleeping soundly on a patch of moss.
A deep bond is fostered between them, helping Clara find the courage to change her life. When she finally decides to climb over the ivy wall and out into the world, there is no going back. Will Clara escape her horrible past, or will it destroy the love she and Gaven share?

Tammy Pendleton thinks she’s broken beyond repair. Sheltered by her parents, a victim of sexual abuse, she wants to escape but doesn’t know how. Until her cousin Clara leads her away from the Pendleton estate, and into Clearwater.
Orion Bennett is a motor-head who works at Pete’s Service Station. At nineteen, he is battling depression. But he’s also suffering with trigeminal neuralgia—the suicide disease—and he’s desperate to escape the pain.
When Tammy wanders into the shop one day, she finds herself strangely comforted by the scents and sounds of the garage. Although the pain they suffer is very different, they discover comfort and understanding in one another. The companionship they share has the power to heal. The question is, will they let it?

Gaven took the back stairs two at a time, emerging into the hall in the back of the bar. From there, he turned the old knob of the heavy wooden door and stepped out into a small parking lot behind the building. His uncle was at work in the bar and wouldn’t even know he’d left.
He walked around the establishment and out toward the road, glancing back to see a laughing couple enter the building as the sound of Bob Segar’s voice flowed into the street. When the door shut, the music grew muffled, and Gaven walked down the sidewalk with his hands in his pockets.
Clearwater, Wyoming was the total opposite of what he was used to. West Palm Beach had been flat, every street lined with palm trees, and nearly every road had multiple lanes. When he’d still had a car—before he wrecked it in an accident that wasn’t his fault—driving in West Palm had been problematic, at best. In this tiny town of less than five hundred people, Gaven doubted driving was a big deal.
As he walked down Queen Street, where the bar was located, he spotted a few ladies congregating in front of Fast Check Grocery. They glanced his way as if gossiping about the newcomer, then quickly averted their gazes.
What is this, Maberry?
He quickened his step, taking in the brick buildings, old-style architecture, and snow-topped mountains that rose all around him, surrounding the town as if to separate it from the rest of the world.
He felt out of place here, but he just had to find something to do. Anything.
Maybe he couldn’t feel much, but he wanted to discover something. Reading, learning, exploring; that’s what he most adored. No matter the town, no matter how small or large, there was always something new to learn. And whatever it was, he’d find it—just like he always did.
