When Deacon Callahan asked his wife Lily to marry him when they were eighteen years old, he only wanted three things: Lily by his side forever, a career in professional baseball and a family. Now at twenty-eight, he’s a veteran in the league. He and Lily are married, but they haven’t been able to conceive and the stress has put a strain on their marriage that’s making it crumble.
When Lily Callahan said ‘yes’ to Deacon all those years ago, she couldn’t wait to spend her life by his side, cheering him on and raising their family. But she didn’t count on not being able to have children. And she didn’t count on always coming in second to baseball. Deacon is rarely ever home and when they are together, they’re just going through the motions. Lily is fed up and ready to call it quits when a surprise rocks her world.
Can Deacon show Lily that she’s number one in his life before it’s too late? Can they save their relationship? Or are they just waiting for the clock to run out on their happily ever after?
