Timing is critical in so many of the events that make up our lives. Your dismal scores on the SAT forced you to attend your safety school, but you met the people who formed the peer group that has loved and supported you for your entire adult life. If it hadn’t been raining, you wouldn’t have dashed into the coffee shop and met the cute barista you spent your thirties with. Small decisions, some almost inconsequential, each producing big results.
When Hennessy Boudreaux’s boss asks her to talk an insolent young woman into leaving the limo she’s commandeered, she never could have guessed that day would change her life. But meeting Townsend Bartley does indeed change her life, for better and worse. Through the years, their lives float together, then drift apart, always with the promise of love just out of reach.
Obstacles, some of them massive, continue to trip them up and make their dreams seem insurmountable. But patience, hard work, and timing can work together to
produce a love too strong, too vibrant and too fulfilling for any woman to resist.
