Goodreads: From the author of Things Remembered and The Year Everything Changed comes a moving novel about love that lasts forever
What’s in the past is over and done with . . . or is it?
Sixteen years ago Carly Hargrove made a decision that would irrevocably alter her life. With little comprehension of the life-long consequences of her actions, she trades her own future happiness to protect the man she’s loved since kindergarten, David Montgomery.
With an ocean separating them, Carly builds a life for herself without David. She’s the mother of three, lives in a beautiful house, and is married to a man who comes home every night—even if most of those nights he drinks too much. What more could she want?
Her answer arrives on a cold fall day when David shows up at her door. In town for his father’s funeral, he has come to see Carly one last time, hoping to rid himself of the anger that still consumes him.
Instead, he is drawn into a web of secrets that rekindles the fierce need he once felt to protect Carly. He becomes caught up in her life in a way he never could have imagined—a way that will bind him to her forever.
Ope’s Opinion: This is one of Georgia Bockoven’s older books. I liked her other books I read so much, I went back to find other things she wrote – this one did not disappoint!
At the beginning, I thought I knew where the story was going – wrong – absolutely wrong. It was an amazing twist. Then there were several other twist I did not see coming. This is a book that you just don’t know what is going to happen until you read the very last sentence.
I think I have at least one more Bockoven on my shelf – I can’t wait to read it!
