At seventeen, Rosalind "Lin” Townsend found herself pregnant and alone. Her deeply religious father threw her out of the house, and Nick Pemberton, her baby’s father, refused to marry her. Yet even at the lowest point in her life, Lin vowed to succeed on her own terms, and to give her son, Will, all the love and happiness she’d been denied. Nineteen years later, Lin has made good on her promises, and Will is about to start his freshman year at NYU. But when Lin visits New York with Will, she crosses paths with the one man she thought she’d never see again – Nick Pemberton, now a millionaire CEO, and the man who send back all her letters unopened. Seeing him fills Lin with anger, and she resolves to right the wrong he did to Will. If she succeeds, like she has with everything else, the cost of revenge may be the loss of a bright new future… Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 2/20/2014

    " This is one of only a few of Michaels books I've read that wasn't in the sisterhood series. I much prefer those, but this one was okay. It kept my attention once I got into it, but the ending was a little shaky. It spent so much time getting to it, and just rushed right through the ending. I wish the ending had been a little more substantial. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 2/14/2014

    " First book that I've read by Fern Michaels. It was kind-of slow for me, but it was a decent book with a good story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda Koledin | 2/8/2014

    " The whole story was pretty unbelievable from start to finish. All those horrible things don't happen to a person and then they end up on top of the world at 35!..... that's fantasy. And although I did read til the end, I can't say its one of Fern Michael's best. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brenda Baune | 2/1/2014

    " Terrible storyline. Unlikeable (understatement!) main character. Couldn't even finish the book, it was that terrible. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joyce | 1/24/2014

    " Generally I enjoy a Fern Michaels book and this was a good story. The problem was that in the concluding chapters the main character repeated her story verbatim one too many times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanette | 1/7/2014

    " I liked this all the way until the end ~ the end left me hanging. I suppose it could be considered a happy ending, but the main storyline - the father and son story - was not completed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alison | 1/2/2014

    " A fast paced reading. I liked the way the author gave us background to the main character (Lin), then jumped forward 17 years to when her son is entering NYU. We didn't have to wade through his growing up years which were immaterial to the story. Young girl (Lin) is raised in an abusive environment and is thrown out of her house with only the clothes on her back when her father discovers she is pregnant. She manages to raise her son and make something of herself. As her son enters NYU, she attends the welcoming ceremony for freshman, and lo and behold, the father of her son is the guest speaker. The son does not know his father is even alive. Lin has carried with her, for all these years, the letters she wrote to the father but were returned, all stamped "return to sender". She's furious she had to struggle to have money for food and he's a rich SOB. Revenge: she wants him to know what it's like to have no money and no control of his life and to sully his reputation. And she takes action to do just that with the help of a private eye who used to work for this SOB and is more than willing to assist her. The father is not a nice man, he treats his driver, his housekeeper, his wife, his employees, his lawyer, his accountant, like dirt. I wanted to see something bad happen to him. Then I took a step back and felt ashamed that I was wanting something bad to happen to him at the hands of another (not murder, just something bad). Although the ending was predictable, I have misgivings about the means to the end. This is the same author that writes the Sisterhood books, the women who work together to bring justice to wrong-doers when the judicial system has failed. There's a trend here in her writings and I'm now curious what her background and youth was like that leads her to write about women making things "right". "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna | 1/2/2014

    " Average. The plot was interesting. Wonder if Will saves Nick? Lots of repeats of story line throughout novel. I guess the author wanted to make sure we "got it". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie | 1/1/2014

    " Was ok. Lin has troubled childhood. Gets pregnant. Raises son by herself and becomes successful. Sees son's father again and tries to get revenge. The revenge is a little extreme and not in character for Lin. All works out. Son and father meet. Lin finds new love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia Solla | 12/4/2013

    " This book was much more interesting. A little redundant in spots but held my interest throughout. I really liked the twist in the romance for the ending. Wasn't what I would have expected as I read the story but was really satisfying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randi | 11/9/2013

    " Fast, cute, summer read. Kept my interest from page 1 to end. Her stories are so simple, you just can't put it down and wait for the next one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine | 10/17/2013

    " I read it and it was a good book but I don't remember a lot of it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Peggy | 9/28/2013

    " Very strange book - started out a good story but fell flat. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kay | 6/10/2013

    " This was too ridiculous for my tastes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 2/26/2013

    " I like Fern Michaels and am looking forward to this book. This did not live up to Ms. Michaels' usual quality books. I was disappointed overall, it was like a subpar soap opera. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherrlyn | 11/23/2012

    " I guess I prefer an honest resolution at the end of a book...not necessarily a big pretty bow all the time, but believable. While the story was well told, I was vaguely unsatisfied at the end. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lori | 11/14/2012

    " I'm a little embarrassed that I finished this book. It was really badly written and the story was weak and predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cassandra Salinas | 9/10/2012

    " this was okay.. not as good as I hoped... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy Luebke | 8/22/2012

    " I enjoyed this book. It's a wonder that all of them arn't in jail. Of course, that's the beauty of stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gloria | 1/1/2012

    " I like Fern Michael's books. This kept my interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Baird | 10/23/2011

    " A good mindless read! Unpredictable plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doris Eyanson | 9/24/2011

    " This was a fun, light read. A bit predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joy | 6/1/2011

    " quick easy read. Love this author and her revenge on men stuff. Take it with a grain of salt, as in real life you could never pull it off or get away with it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 5/9/2011

    " Interesting story, but didn't like all the swearing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 4/29/2011

    " Another Fren Michaels great book. I love the way she writes her books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kimberly | 4/23/2011

    " Maybe the worst book I have ever read. For real. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tania | 4/14/2011

    " Yay for piles of books. Randomly chosen as my book 40 of 2011 - aim 133 books in 2011.

    review: I would say 3.75 stars.
    "

    " Very strange book - started out a good story but fell flat. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara | 3/9/2011

    " I wanted this to be a good book, and it had potential, but it just didn't get there. The characters were sort of boring, the story could have been written better, but it was short, so that was good. I liked the ending, so that made it worth my time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trina | 11/13/2010

    " Quick read. Good fairytale, real life doesn't seem to happen like this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 10/22/2010

    " I like Fern Michaels and am looking forward to this book. This did not live up to Ms. Michaels' usual quality books. I was disappointed overall, it was like a subpar soap opera. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucy | 10/21/2010

    " Another good book by Fern Michaels. Interesting start, great middle, and hurried ending. Like it all just wished the ending would be more detailed. Great plot thou, about woman who accomplished much more in life then average person in face of severe hardship. Loved the story overall. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 10/13/2010

    " I thought this was a very good book. There are a number of very interesting characters in this book that really make the story. The story is good and you almost want more at the end, but maybe not knowing more makes the story. "
