From the Back Cover
For the past few years, Marie Vanders has led a relatively small existence: the job, the cat, paying off bills, and the dream of going to graduate school. The salient properties of her simple, compartmentalized life were social isolation and routine. The last thing that she wanted - or expected - was a chance encounter with a man who turns her orderly system on its head. Their meeting proves to be the catalyst for a journey into self-discovery, forgiveness, and what it means to let go of the past.

I recommend that you read the sample, and if the style and character dynamics does not turn you off, you are probably in for an entertaining read.
I try not to comment too often on choice of book title. However, I think this particular work would benefit from a stronger, and less ambiguous title. It doesn't provide nearly enough insight and I'm afraid will not draw the audience it rightly deserves. The only hitch I had in the general story was when I learned the main character was a white, blonde female. Given the cultural and family conflicts presented from the first chapter forward, I automatically imagined a girl of Asian descent. It threw me for a loop when this was revealed not to be the case and it took sometime for me to accept the imagery. I call it a cultural imprint or hiccup. Was it devastating to the story line? No, but it did make me question the believability of the story (even fiction), because after all, a fiction writer's job is to `sell' the story.
I enjoyed the abrupt start of the novel as well as the fast faced development of the two characters.
There were moments where my suspension of disbelief was tested by the convenient coincidences, but overall I found the book enjoyable to the end.
