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.
