Summary (From the publisher):

A wife and mother discovers that although life has led her in a joyous direction, she still cherishes memories of her first love...the college boyfriend who captivated her heart and then, without a word of warning, disappeared.

Life has been good to Amy Reynolds since then. Her marriage is satisfying, her children thriving. But now that Nick is back in her life, she can't help recalling the beach where they pledged their destinies together some twenty years ago. And she can't help being tempted by the life she might have lived...might still live, a choice that would betray all she holds dear.

If this debut novel is any indication of what we can expect from Patti Callahan Henry, we can look forward to many years of reading enjoyment to come." The Wichita Falls Times Record News
