Amanda Greene Toner, twenty-three years’ old, is a recently-and-unhappily married young woman living on the Main Line of Philadelphia, PA in a world filled with tradition and values. Amanda yearns to find her own identity and independence while her husband and parents hold her caged by those traditions and values as a means to safeguard their own secrets.
French-born and British-educated Remy Alden, thirty-six years’ old, is a self-made executive, currently living in Los Angeles, CA. Upon his mother’s death at the supposed hands of a man who won’t acknowledge his paternity – at the age of eight – Remy was sent to an orphanage, ran away at fourteen, and found his way to London where he created a new identity.
In their chance meeting at a trade show in Los Angeles, Amanda encounters Remy - and he wants her for his own despite her being married.
Remy aches to build a family of which he has never known; Amanda longs to escape the confinement and constraints of authoritative and family governance.
This is a story of two lovers struggling to hold onto their love as expectations put upon them by each other pull them apart; secrets are discovered of parents; and of two unlikely individuals, one who takes advantage of Amanda’s naïve character and brings Remy to the brink of financial ruin and another who has silently helped Remy throughout his whole life and who may not be able to stop Remy from destroying Amanda.
Can the two lovers overcome the past and secrets to build their own happy ending?
For mature readers only.
