    The lessons taught by ancient Chinese philosophers surprisingly still apply, and they challenge our fundamental assumptions about how to lead a fulfilled, happy, and successful life. Self-discovery, it turns out, comes through looking outward, not inward. Power comes from holding back. Good relationships come from small gestures. Spontaneity comes from practice. And excellence comes from what you choose to do, not your "natural" abilities.

    This is the love story of Michael Keddington and Faye Murrow, a love story that takes place not in seclusion, but in the real world, with the challenges that all lovers must face. No relationship is an island: there are threads that bind us all and pull at our lives: the demands of family, friends, work, and social obligation. And there are times that the pull of those threads becomes greater than the strength of the relationship. In these times, no matter how much two people love each other, a relationship must grow strong or be torn apart.
