Isaac Price is a hard working teacher, forced to move back to the town he hates in order to help his father as his mother's mind spirals from reality, devoured by Alzheimer's.
Eloise Blackburn is a good student, struggling to get her life back on course after a year where she lost control of everything.
Both are desperately trying to escape, he from small town life and she from an overbearing and controlling father. In each other they find a kindred spirit and form a bond that slowly blossoms into love.
But in a world where everyone is quick to judge the outcome, yet never questions the journey, it doesn't matter that she's of age. It doesn't matter that they never intended for it to happen. All that matters is that they broke a taboo - a love between a teacher and a student twelve years his junior.
Unable to walk away from each other, do they dare to risk it all?
Forget labels. Forget rules. This is just a journey of two people who fall.

Isaac and Eloise thought that the worst was behind them. At last they can stop sneaking around but at what cost?
Isaac expected to lose his job and Eloise was glad to be free of her overbearing and controlling father. What they didn't know was just how much they would lose and to Isaac it feels like everything.
Life has to go on and Eloise still has to go to University. Can their relationship survive the distance on top of everything else between them, or is it time to admit they made a mistake?
distinction, book 3
It has been four years since Eloise last saw her husband. Four long years. Her memories of her marriage to Isaac, though distant in time, are still fresh in her mind and she’s determined that she’ll never go back. Their relationship was toxic. They were bad for each other, or at least that’s what she’s convinced herself.
Isaac didn't realise just how badly he missed his wife until she shows up on his doorstep demanding things from him that he isn't willing to give. Though it’s a little too late to ask for her forgiveness and repair their relationship, he wants to try to at least build bridges so that he can move on with his life.
Moving on seems an impossible task to accomplish when there’s just so much unfinished business between them.
