Like most mothers, Amy Reynolds has anticipated the moment when her son brings home his first serious girlfriend. But when he does, she’s shocked to meet the girl’s father. He is none other than Nick Lowry – the college boyfriend who captivated her heart and soul and then, without a word of explanation or warning, disappeared. She still remembers what she felt for Nick…and she still wonders what took him away from her. Life has been good to Amy. Her marriage is satisfying, her teenage children thriving. She loves her beautifully restored home and her work teaching at the local college. She has long since buried her memories of Nick. But now that he is back in her life, she can’t help recalling the beach where they walked and kissed and pledged their destinies together some twenty years ago. She can’t help missing the young woman she was then, full of passion and promise. And she can’t help being tempted by the life she might have lived…might still live – even though making that choice would betray all she holds dear. Download and start listening now!

    " A woman reunites with her college boyfriend who disappeared 25 years earlier, with dire consequences to her marriage. Wasn't the best book I've ever read, but worth finishing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 1/11/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 12/6/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Babs | 4/14/2013

    " love her down to earth stories! "

    " I wasn't sure if I didn't enjoy this book as much as the others because of the time in my life when I read it or if it just wasn't as good as the others I have read by this author. I think now that I have finished the book that it just didn't connect as well for me. Well-written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 1/1/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 10/12/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 12/3/2011
