A fairytale future. A Checkered past. A decision awaits. Brad Cutler, twenty-eight, is a rising star at his New York ad agency, about to marry the girl of his dreams. Anyone would agree he has it all—a great career, a beautiful and loving fiancée, and a fairy tale life ahead of him … when memories of a high school girlfriend begin to torment him. Lost innocence and one very difficult choice flood his conscience, and he is no longer sure what the future will bring except for this: He must go back to the shores of Holden Beach in search of his first love, and a forgiveness neither of them has ever known. Three people must work through the repercussions of a decision made long ago before any of them can look toward a new future.

    " Abortion is probably the most divisive social law that we have and will continue to have. The fictional story is about the 3 that abortion affects. The mother, the father and the baby. I liked the Kingsbury gave this baby a name. Just like the holocaust, it was a mass of people without names and abortion in our society has become that. However, there are names, with likes and dislikes, with gifts, and worth. The story is not about judgement, but about forgiveness and healing. The healing comes when dealing with the act of abortion and that was what this story was about. "

    " This was a very good book. It helped me to feel and better understand the scars on the heart and soul when a person decides to have an abortion. So sad ... "

    " This book blew me away. With the last novel I read of Karen's, Between Sundays, she won me over totally. With this book, I am an official fan. This story is something that is so hard to talk about and with the honesty and realness she wrote with, I felt like almost like I was intruding in their business. The way the plot developed was awesome. The emotions and reactions of everyone were completely true to life and the subject matter wasn't something that was glossed over or made into a pat little sermon. The relationship between Brad and Emma over the course of the weekend was so bittersweet and I teared up more than once. I'm really glad it ended the way it did, however, because anything else would have felt like they were living in the past. I really really liked Laura's character and the journey she went on. Her emotions about the situation were completely normal and she had every right to feel that way. But Karen really flipped the situation around and showed her feelings from a biblical light that isn't shown very often. It helped me personally to read Laura's struggle. The scene between her and Brad when he comes was amazing and I couldn't believe she did what she did but I thought it was an amazing gesture toward him that showed her change of heart. I HIGHLY recommend this book "
