About the Book

What if you had a second chance at love that was denied you long ago? This is exactly what happens to Casey Becket two days before she and her husband Michael are to celebrate their twentieth wedding anniversary. Suddenly, standing in her back yard by the fountain is Will Combray, the man she once deeply loved and was engaged to marry, yet who jilted her on her wedding day. Older and wearier now, yet still handsome and unpredictable, Will tells Casey that he's come back in order to try and piece together his own life, which has been a series of emotional failures. He knows in his heart that everything went wrong for him the day he left her.Will's reappearance throws chaos into Casey's ordered life. Her marriage to the kind and faithful Michael Becket, who has been her best friend since childhood, has been a source of great comfort, if not passion.Long ago, after Will's cruel and inexplicable disappearing act, followed by a family tragedy, Michael promised to take care of Casey and give her a happy life, and he has kept his word. But now, with Will's sudden return, over twenty years after he left, Casey is forced to ask herself a difficult question: Which is the better life: one that is calm and contented, or unpredictable and deeply charged?Tugged in one direction by faithfulness and honor, and in another by pure desire, Casey Becket must relive her own troubled history to discover which choice will satisfy her heart.
