Teenaged Chris discovers the bittersweet joy of first love. Maggie and Joe, married sixty-five years, courageously face a separation that even their devotion cannot prevent. The married woman Peter yearns for suddenly comes within his reach. And Julia ultimately finds the strength to rebuild her life—something she once thought impossible.

I am looking forward to reading more of this author, as I love the way she tells the stories of ordinary people, who deal with the ups & downs of life. Thank you, I will recommend this book to my friends.
