After weeks of captivity as a hostage, Hank Wandersee rejected the federal government's protective custody and instead appealed to Jane Woodruf for sanctuary.
Years before, they had forged a deep and lasting friendship. So Jane unhesitatingly took Hank into her home, determined to keep suspicious federal agents and prying reporters at bay.
But even as she encouraged the small town of Oak Harbor to rally round, to make Hank's whereabouts and identity their own public secret, Jane was shocked to realize that both she and Hank had changed.
Somehow friendship had turned to love, and Hank held the key to her heart.
