Why is the cat named after Aunt Loretta?
It’s just one of the many questions I never thought I’d ask in my lifetime. I mean, who has to ask why a cat is named after your aunt? It’s not something that normally comes up in dinner conversation. Of course, I never imagined I’d have to move back home to Fairview either. But sometimes you don’t have a choice. Sometimes life chooses for you. Unemployed and nearly broke, home is the only logical decision I could make, especially when my four-year-old son is counting on me.
My name is Jake and, besides being unemployed and nearly broke, I’m keeping a secret. Well, to be honest, I think I’m keeping a secret. I’ve lived in the big city for nearly ten years and the thought of moving back to a small farm town like Fairview feels like punishment. But to my surprise, it’s just the opposite. It turns out to be the best thing that's ever happened to me…
