Annie Colwater has been married to Blake for 20 years but as their daughter, Natalie, leaves home for a trip to London and then onto college, Blake confesses that he is in love with a younger woman. Annie decides to go home and visit her father. She meets up again with her first love, Nick Delacroix, a recent widower, and his young emotionally scarred daughter, Izzy. Together they begin to heal but soon her world is turned upside down again. I found this book to be an emotional roller coaster and the twists and turns kept me turning the pages. It's a story of a 2nd chance at life where cleaning up the first one can be a bit messy. This is an early book from Kristin Hannah and you can see that she is winding up for some of her better stories. I love to watch how a writer's voice transforms and this is a good place to start with Kristin Hannah. If you like chick-lit, then you will enjoy this one!
