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.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings Before you start this book, be prepared to cry and devour this book in one sitting.  Ok, now that you have been warned let me tell you that I LOVED this book.  Originally published in 1993 as The Way It Should Have been, this is my second Bockoven book that has been updated and republished and made me a new audience member for this author.
