Synopsis

"Her most haunting and passionate novel yet." —Affaire de Coeur

From the beloved #1 bestselling sensation Fern Michaels, a haunting portrait of love and war—and the passionate woman swept into an epic journey of desire, heartbreak, and destiny.

Casey Adams, a dedicated nurse, loses her heart overseas to idealistic officer Mac Carlin, heir to an immense fortune. Then tragedy strikes. Believing that Casey has died in an explosion, Mac returns to San Francisco grief-stricken, to a life he never wanted. But Casey is still alive, keeping Mac in the dark after learning that he kept from her a shattering secret. Once home, Casey finds healing in the hands and heart of a brilliant plastic surgeon and forges ahead under a new name and with a new career. But fate charts a collision course for her and Mac, now a U.S. senator who doesn’t recognize the compelling TV producer getting under his skin. For Casey, this full-circle journey cannot be denied, no matter what. For only by reclaiming the woman she was and the life she lost can she embrace the magic of unexpected love.

About Fern Michaels

See more books from this Author
Fern Michaels, who is originally known as Mary Ruth Kuczkir, grew up in Hasting, Pennsylvania, and is fondly known by family and friends as Dink. After her last child entered school, her husband forced her to get a job, when all Michaels knew was motherhood. Instead of approaching the world with no skills, she turned her love of reading into a career and began to write books. After four years of partnering with Ballantine Books in the production of her books, she left her agent, sold her home in New Jersey and moved to South Carolina, where she has remodeled a 300 hundred year old plantation house. Michaels books consist of scrappy heroines, much as she herself was, and the perserverance of the female soul. She considers her true day of prevailance, the epitome of her perseverance, to be the day she was inducted into the New Jersey Literary Hall of Fame. In order to give back some of what she's received, Michaels has set up The Fern Michaels Foundation which allows grants of four year scholarships to needy students. She has also opened affordable pre-school and day care centers for single moms in financial distress. Michaels does not consider herself a writer, merely a good story teller, who has written sixty seven books, most of which appear on the New York Times Best Sellers List, such as Breaking News in 2012.
