Publisher's Summary

Shattered by the loss of her husband, Maggie struggled each day to put her grief behind her. To be there for her teenaged daughter. And to face life again. When she returned to her Wisconsin hometown, she never expected to feel a spark of longing for her old high school sweetheart. 

Eric's marriage to a career-driven woman had left him childless and unhappy - he knew there had to be more to life than always wanting what you couldn't have. Seeing Maggie again filled him with hope. Maybe the answer to his dreams had just come to town. 

Their memory of young love blossomed into an affair that would shake both of their lives - and would challenge everything they believed about loving each other. Could they follow a dream from the past? Or had they missed the chance of a lifetime?

One of my favorite of her contemporary stories

I’ve always loved this one. The story is filled with wonderful, in-depth characters who struggle emotionally but grow in strength. So glad it’s in audio form. Well done.

2nd favorite book by LaVyrle Spencer

One of my favorite books, where you are immersed in Door County, WI. Favorite phrase from here, too.

Lots of Angst

It was well written, but emotionally draining. Too many unhappy people and no resolution until the very end.

Guess cheaters ain’t it for me

Low key hated both of the protagonists in this novel, I made it to about an hour left of the novel and had no sympathy for either of the characters.
