Intro:

(Prologue)

September 5, 2000

Some days, Kelly thought, are more important than others.  Some days you wake with your heart pounding and your hopes higher than the sky.  Some days you know you are exactly where you are meant to be.

Teaser:

By the time she brought her BMW to a stop in the circle drive of her house she was shaking.  Thank God, she thought as she stepped from the heat into the cool front hall, for this pale palace that rose around her like a medieval cloister.

Synopsis:  A secret in a woman’s past returns to change her life forever in this riveting novel from New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer. Now available for the first time as an eBook!
