What if the children of star-crossed lovers actually dealt with their families' troubles?

Autumn Dean unexpectedly returns home from Europe to her father's ranch in the Okanagan Valley, where she reconnects with Bruce Langdon, a stoic childhood friend grown into an accomplished rancher. Autumn and Bruce's budding romance is halted by the revival of an intergenerational grudge between their two families that is shrouded in mystery. Autumn is insistent on uncovering the root of the hostility: a forbidden romance between her mother and Bruce's father that had devastating consequences. As Bruce and Autumn circle the truth of what happened, they're both haunted by the past, and must decide if they forge ahead together or alone. Originally published in 1931, Prologue to Love is a lush portrait of early 20th century BC ranch life, and an intergenerational tale of love and loss—and hope and redemption. This new edition features an introduction by Hannah McGregor.
