Bryce Stanley is a normal guy; he has a nice house, on a nice street, in a nice neighborhood.

It took a divorce, some self-discovery, and marrying a hometown girl to bring him back 30 years later. Though he may have re-established his roots here, there is little doubt that he is going places. more
