Holly woke in the hospital bed...
The Fourth of July accident had taken the lives of her mother and father, and she faced a future filled with both change and challenge.
Living with her grandparents on ten acres out in the country would be a lot different from living in town. It meant a new school, and new friends. When she is not invited to an 'old' friend's birthday party, she realizes that she cannot live in the past.
Holly forms a bond with her Granddad when she studies to become a ham radio operator, and join him in his favourite pastime. When he has what seems to be a heart attack, a fall fishing trip almost turns into a tragedy. Holly's new knowledge of amateur radio helps save the day.
Only when Gram and Holly bring Granddad home from the hospital does Holly realize how important the three of them are to each other... TOGETHER.
