San Francisco, 1971: hippies in the streets, music and revolution in the air. The evening Marek Sumner opened his door to the wild-looking Felicity Powers, he knew nothing would ever be the same again. But even love and passion couldn't keep them together.
Forty-three years later, having lived in the world's most dangerous places as a foreign aid worker, Felicity is back, still offering him love, passion, and adventure. But why would Marek risk having his heart broken a second time? Now a well-known author, he loves his calm, solitary life in an isolated farmhouse. He and Felicity are just too different; their relationship could never work.
But Felicity is just as fascinating and joyful as ever, and that wonderful sexy magic is still there, too. As for love, perhaps it's even deeper and more delightful the second time around.
It's never to late for the one that got away!

♥ Story ♥
Felicity and Marek met 43 years ago in college. Their attraction came quite sudden and intense as it often does when you're so young. Different ideas of what each wanted for their future, eventually lead to their demise.
This story is told through a series of flashbacks, and at times it can get a bit confusing. There is no true aural clues to signal the shifts in time. I ended up reading along with the ebook as I listened to the audiobook.
Felicity and Marek are both incredibly stubborn and their lack of communication makes it even worse for their relationship. Felecity's penchant for running away from her problems, doesn't help either. And she doesn't just run to a friend's house, she runs to the other side of the globe!
Forty years and all it entails, doesn't damper the attraction and love these two still feel. But just as the warmth returns so does the cold. The epic level of tenacity and determination to hold out for the other to make the first move is astounding. The constant power tug of war carried on a little too long in my opinion.
It is refreshing to have the main characters of a love story not be so young. Yes, there are many flashbacks to their youth, so we have a lot of interaction with them in their early 20s. Ultimately, the main meat and potatoes of the story, takes place with them in their 60s. Their bodies may of aged but they are still young at heart.

What a great story. I enjoyed listening about people who have faults, flaws and understand they are not perfect.
Having spent years thinking about each other, it was nice to have an older couple declare their love.
A well scripted tale with emotion on every page.
I received a this audio book through a giveaway, and I'm so glad I did. I love finding new authors who know how to weave a story.
