Our heroine is a small town librarian. She has never married. She has a twin sister. Neither sister is close. Her life changes drastically when her niece dies in an accident. She goes to the funeral to support her sister. Her sister leaves her nephew with her. Her sister is so filled with grief, that she just wants to go away to mourn alone. The small town librarian forges a relationship with the little boy and meets a man who could well be the man of her dreams. She and her sister have a chance to start over, and are starting to build a relationship, when she finds out the man that she loves had at one time been in love with her sister. Although this was a decent book, I thought our small town librarian spent way too much time, feeling sorry for herself, and being jealous of her sister. She almost ruins the relationship of a lifetime through her insecurities and petty jealousies.The former relationship between her sister and her lover, was not only long over, but one that had happened long before she had met the man that she might be able to spend the rest of her life with, if she can let go, forgive, and forget.

The Mallory women are twins, but everyone can tell them apart. Harper is a famous and wild painter who lives in the wealthy enclave of Stone Point, New York, while Liz lives a vastly different existence as a librarian in their hometown of Longwood Falls. Over time the sisters have drifted apart, settling into their separate lives, for better or worse. But a family tragedy--the accidental death of Harper's young daughter--forces them to confront each other the for the first time in years. Liz decision to reach out to her sister eventually finds her taking care of Harper's troubled son, Nick--the nephew Liz has never met, and leaving her own life behind in order to move into the estate in Stone Point. What appears to be a temporary taks turns into something much more complicated and confusing when Liz finds herself falling in love with David Fields, a handsome amateur astronomer with a difficult secret in his past.
