Publisher's Summary

Shattered by the loss of her husband, Maggie struggled each day to put her grief behind her. To be there for her teenaged daughter. And to face life again. When she returned to her Wisconsin hometown, she never expected to feel a spark of longing for her old high school sweetheart. 

Eric's marriage to a career-driven woman had left him childless and unhappy - he knew there had to be more to life than always wanting what you couldn't have. Seeing Maggie again filled him with hope. Maybe the answer to his dreams had just come to town. 

Their memory of young love blossomed into an affair that would shake both of their lives - and would challenge everything they believed about loving each other. Could they follow a dream from the past? Or had they missed the chance of a lifetime?

Couldn’t stop listening

I have read this book so many times, it’s one of my all time favorites. I was thrilled to find it on audiobook and instantly bought it. For once, I was glad for my commute because it gave me time to listen. It was truly bittersweet when I finished it.

Right In The Feels

As always, LaVyrle Spencer writes so down to earth and realistically, I can imagine every scene and nuance of the story perfectly. This story could be a story that happens to anyone and that’s what makes it so compelling and wonderful.

enjoyable

A little predictable but comforting . Lots of descriptive adjectives in the writing style seemed i dont know ...a bit forced instead of their probable poetic intent to illicit imagination. I felt a bit burdened instead of invited to my own verdant imagination which makes ( listening)/reading the written word such a superior art form for me

One of my favorite of her contemporary stories

I’ve always loved this one. The story is filled with wonderful, in-depth characters who struggle emotionally but grow in strength. So glad it’s in audio form. Well done.

2nd favorite book by LaVyrle Spencer

One of my favorite books, where you are immersed in Door County, WI. Favorite phrase from here, too.

Lots of Angst

It was well written, but emotionally draining. Too many unhappy people and no resolution until the very end.
