Amy Reynolds has some reservations when her husband Phil and herself plan to meet their son Jack’s first college girlfriend. But, she has no idea that the most surprising event that will happen won’t have a thing to do with their son or his girlfriend. For Lisbeth’s father is none other than Nick Lowry – her Nick Lowry from all those years ago.

Amy can still vividly remember the special time that she shared with Nick and how she felt when he literally disappeared. A part of her has always wondered what happened to him, but now is not the perfect time for him to literally fall back into her life. After all, Amy has a great life – handsome husband, great kids and no reason to consider what could have been. So why is it that Amy can’t stop remembering twenty years ago?

This is a story about first love and also a story about decision-making that will affect every aspect of a woman’s life. Fans of women’s fiction type books similar to Siddons and Belva Plain, will probably enjoy this book that would be perfect to toss in the beach bag this summer.

While this story was well written, it touched on a subject matter that this particular reader was not crazy about. I certainly would try other books by this author that would perhaps catch my interest.
