Her departure had been abrupt, painful, and not of her choosing. She'd never had the chance to tell Logan the truth. After all these years, she wasn't even sure he was interested in hearing her side of the story. She had come to the reunion to prove to herself that she wasn't afraid to see him again. And to ask him for a favor.

The other reviewers have covered the plot rather well, so I won't go into that. I still remember the day I read this whole book while sitting on an Avalon, New Jersey beach.
While I'm not one for reading many romance novels, this book I could not put it down. The love story was touching and sensual. Sandra Brown sure does know how to write love scenes as well. It's one book I cannot bring myself to get rid of. Fantastic!
It's kind of a sad book about a couple that was pulled apart as kids, but were brought back together by circumstances. Like I said, it's sad. But I still enjoyed it. I just wish it had been a little lighter.
