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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy L. | 2/15/2014

    " I thought this was another well written story by Fern Michaels. The middle of it was a little hard to stick it out. Hoping the Lynn wouldn't get herself into some serious trouble with trying to get even with Nick. Considering the type of upbringing Lynn had endured, she managed to overcome those struggles to become a successful business woman and mother. "

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanette | 2/8/2014

    " 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 Doris | 2/4/2014

    " Shallow, unbelievable. A disappointing book by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucy Bilik | 2/2/2014

    " 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Miki | 1/31/2014

    " Still another badly written book about unlikeable people. Incredibly unrealistic, the "heroine" - and I use the term loosely - went from being an unwed mother at seventeen, rejected by her parents to a multi-millionaire in less than 15 years all told. Not incredible in itself, but she did it by waitressing in a diner, later buying the diner with a bank loan of a half-million and going on from there. Pray tell me - what bank would lend that much money to a waitress who had to work double shifts to pay the bills? And how did she get to be a tycoon less than 10 years later, owning only the single diner? Anyway, she did. For years she sent her son's fabulously rich father letters, all returned marked "Return to Sender". Did she never think someone else might have intercepted them? Did she ever think to STOP WRITING TO THE JERK?? NOOOO. Instead, she decided to "teach him a lesson" him by messing with his bank accounts, comprom,ising his credit rating, and digging up old family scandals. Can we all say "FELONY!!"??? In the meantime, the father - who is a rich SOB whose wife hates him so much she tries to kill him - becomes ill with leukemia, and has to cope with his life falling apart while trying to stay alive. Not having any family that he knows of, he sponsors a bone marrow drive in hopes of finding a compatible donor for a $10 million prize. Of course, his son wants to win the money (not knowing that is is his father), but his mother PREVENTS him from being a donor because she doesn't want to admit to her son that his father was not dead, as she had claimed all his life!! Lovely woman. The whole thing end improbably with her taking her son to see his father in the hospital where she falls in love with his doctor. She throws all the returned letters at the father who suddenly notices the words "Address Unknown" on each one. Somehow, even after carrying the letters everywhere with her for last 20 years, she had missed that small detail. Everyone has a little chuckle, the rich SOB gets his transplant, she marries the doctor and they all live happily ever after. Phhhggghhhlllhhhllhh!!!!! "

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janet | 1/25/2014

    " Okay, I stayed with this soap opera plot book till the end. It was full of twists and turns and yes a little bit of insight, but most of this storyline is not plausible and in 279 pages little insight is gained about the characters. I did like the quote "The past is prologue" and when I went to enter it in my quotes found that it was a corruption of a quote from Shakespeare. With so many novels to choose from I don't think I will be reading a Fern Michaels novel very soon again. "

    " This was too ridiculous for my tastes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joyce | 1/3/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judi/Judith | 1/3/2014

    " 10/14/2010 It's a surprisingly simple but good story. Very entertaining. Perfect for listening to in my car while I do errands. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie | 12/28/2013

    " 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 Sandra | 12/17/2013

    " I really like this author and enjoyed the book very much. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kimberly Mcglohon | 12/6/2013

    " I read this book for book club. It was an easy read and mostly predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Beth | 11/30/2013

    " A pretty good read about the price of exacting revenge. I liked the characters showcased in a New York background. Light, summer-time entertainment. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marcia | 6/22/2013

    " One word for this book...UNREALISTIC! With all the great books to be read what a waste of good reading time. The only thing worse than the plot is the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Buehl | 5/6/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 4/19/2013

    " great book. I just love Fern Michaels... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicky | 3/31/2013

    " Fairly decent. Many events resembled my life. Story line was fairly predictable though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly Woodlief | 2/8/2013

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Denisec | 11/8/2012

    " Michaels just gets a little too far fetched for me sometimes. Her characters do difficult and/or illegal actions with ease and are never caught. The book was ok and typical Michaels style. OK for a quick, light read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda Koledin | 8/29/2012

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim Schonig Mitchell | 7/21/2012

    " Thought the ending could have been better. Felt like the ending had nothing to do with what the story was about!! Felt like there were too many quetions that the writer set up that wasn't answered! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kelly Hewlett | 7/19/2012

    " Definitely a waste of time read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gidget | 4/16/2012

    " Completely and totally unrealistic. Grammatical errors, factual errors and wrong names used more than once. Poor editing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Baird | 8/26/2011

    " A good mindless read! Unpredictable plot. "

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

    review: I would say 3.75 stars.

  • 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. "
