Finn and Lara have been through so much during this first year of marriage. Sometimes it can be overwhelming, even when your husband isn't a super star! In Country Roads, we met them both and saw how they had reconnected and fallen in love. Life was all roses until the horrible accident. Then Finn withdrew and Lara faced her own issues. But the the two of them came out together stronger and set about to have an amazing marriage.
In Almost Heaven, the couple found their footing among their jobs. Now married, there are always concessions which have to be made. Finn's career and his success was something they both dreamed about and when he won the award in Nashville, it was an amazing event. But it's hard when you are combining two lives. There's all the baggage you bring with you from your previous relationships and family issues. Lara had her share of secrets, too. But once again, tragedy struck.
Third time's a charm... Finn and Lara are back and ready to make a home among the soft lights of Nashville. A place for them to withdraw from the bright lights of stage and move forward, making a family. Will Take Me Home prove to be the winning time for them?
Sometimes you have to take the long, bumpy road to get home.
Finn and Lara Murphy thought they finally had it all. He had a chart-topping country music career, they were happily married, and their first child was due in a few months. Until… that fateful afternoon when all was lost.

“I am. I’m here. And it’s because of you…because of you and your love. Don’t bottle things up. Don’t sto—” But it was me who stopped. I didn’t want to push it. I didn’t want to risk the progress that had just been made.
He took my chin in his fingers and tilted my face toward his. “Say it.”
I adjusted slightly so I could meet his eyes. “Don’t do that again, Finn. Don’t risk going off your meds.” My bravado started to fail as my voice cracked and my eyes got a tad watery. “Don’t. Please.”
“I’m sorry. I thought I just wanted a couple of days to feel …” He tried to explain. “I let you down.”
“You … no. It’s okay to feel. Just don’t hurt yourself doing it. And don’t shield me from it.”
