Summary (From the publisher):

As two women from opposite sides of the same sea meet, a tale unfolds that will draw readers into the heart's remembrances, and the tender awakenings of first love. Though bogged down in the stress of planning her elaborate wedding to a professional golfer, twenty-seven-year-old Kara Larson still makes time to visit ninety-six-year-old Maeve Mahoney at her nursing home. And as Maeve recounts the rambling story of her first love back in Ireland, Kara is driven to remember her own first love: childhood neighbor Jack Sullivan.

  • "Not just a beautifully written story, but an important one as well. It's about all the things that make us worthy as human beings, integrity, honesty, and living the life you are meant to live. And perhaps most important, it shows us what brings genuine happiness...a triumph!" Dorothea Benton Frank, author of The Land of the Mango Sunsets
  • "An inspiring tale that awakens one's mind to the choices made in life and accentuates the importance of following your heart. Henry's characters are true to life and full of depth; her settings, vivid and symbolic; and her story, memorable and timeless. Expect to be caught in the grip of this powerful novel to the very end." Romantic Times
  • "Henry is showing us that while those happy families may be utterly similar, they are also a gift, to everyone." Atlanta Woman magazine
  • "Known for her lyrical writing in Losing the Moon and Where the River Runs, Henry doesn't disappoint in this beautiful novel of discovery and self-acceptance, a romance with universal appeal." Booklist
  • "Even for those readers, most, I would imagine, who don't have some epic, tragic teenage first love, the ideas still resonate...a quick enjoyable read that stays with you afterward, as you wonder if there are hints of your own heart worth a listen." The Herald-Sun (NC)
  • "A compelling tale...part romance, part self-discovery, completely entertaining. Compared to major Southern writers, Patti Callahan Henry holds her own." Topsail Magazine
