Publisher's Summary

Winner of Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award

She can't forget him - he can't remember her.

Together, they must discover the healing power of unforgettable love

The day Lieutenant Matthew Foster departed for his so-called 'tour' in Vietnam, he never expected a sudden change in his itinerary would include an extended stay in the horrific Hanoi Hilton. Six years later, he's finally released with the other POWs during Operation Homecoming. Unfortunately, his memories before his capture were erased by the complimentary torture provided by the hotel's concierge. Due to prior facial injuries and the beard concealing his gauntness, he looks nothing like the boyish photo in his military file.

When the Army informs Matt he has a wife and he was mistakenly declared dead, he's sure Abby must have made a new life for herself. He doubts the bitter man he's become can salvage the boy she once cared for, so to be fair to her, he decides to simply write a note to wish her well and leave. But before he does, he can't resist going to Redemption, PA, to catch a glimpse of the woman he'd loved enough to marry.

The irony of the small town's name is totally eclipsed by Matt's dread that he'll discover he's lost something truly worth remembering. That fear becomes reality when he learns Abby is engaged, and he's a daddy! Luckily, his wife doesn't recognize him, so Matt could still walk away from the beautiful stranger who's been starring in his X-rated dreams. However, he could never, ever abandon his sons.

The clock is ticking. Any day, the military will inform Abby he's alive, and her wedding is in only six weeks. It doesn't give Matt much time to discover if he can reclaim the love the war stole from him.

Narrator ruined it

The narrator does a lousy female voice. Abby sounded like a whiny 6 year old the entire book —-even when she was happy! The story itself was rather juvenile and the story unrealistic. The main character has been separated from his family for seven years—-
But he decides to see if his wife is happy with someone else?? And he’s prepared to walk away? Seriously?? I fail to see how this book won any awards:(((

Just Awful

This book was just awful. I don't know which is worse... the writing or the narration. It's so poorly written and the narrator sounds as if he's reading to me.

Great read!

Enjoyed this book, heart warming story.
Would recommend to friends, especially if they've experienced recent loss.

Hit so close to home

I was a bride of the Vietnam years, that this book was so close to parts of our life together. Matt and my Art were cut from the same cloth as to how they loved their wives. Being a pow happened to him, before I met him and his love for me was enveloping. I always felt so loved and safe for over 32 years.
This was one of the best books I've read in a long time and it will stay with me forever. Thanks to the author.

Yuk!

Not well-written, not the steamy novel it tried to be. Not worth the money, even at a discounted price. Just predictable and gross.

Disappointing

Narration was terrible. I felt like I was being read to and not able to get drawn in to the story.
