The New York Times bestselling author of The Beach House , Jemima J , and Summer Secrets presents a novel about the pleasure and meaning of finding a home--and family--where you least expect them...
 
When Emma Montague left the strict confines of upper-crust British life for New York, she felt sure it would make her happy. Away from her parents and expectations, she felt liberated, throwing herself into Manhattan life replete with a high-paying job, a gorgeous apartment, and a string of successful boyfriends. But the cutthroat world of finance and relentless pursuit of more began to take its toll. This wasn't the life she wanted either.
 
On the move again, Emma settles in the picturesque waterfront town of Westport, Connecticut, a world apart from both England and Manhattan. It is here that she begins to confront what it is she really wants from her life. With no job, and knowing only one person in town, she channels her passion for creating beautiful spaces into remaking the dilapidated cottage she rents from Dominic, a local handyman who lives next door with his six-year-old son.
 
Unlike any man Emma has ever known, Dominic is confident, grounded, and committed to being present for his son whose mother fled shortly after he was born. They become friends, and slowly much more, as Emma finds herself feeling at home in a way she never has before.
 
But just as they start to imagine a life together as a family, fate intervenes in the most shocking of ways. For the first time, Emma has to stay and fight for what she loves, for the truth she has discovered about herself, or risk losing it all.
 
In a novel of changing seasons, shifting lives, and selfless love, a story unfolds--of one woman's far-reaching journey to discover who she is truly meant to be...

This was my first time to read Jane Green. By chapter 3 I was wondering where this storyline was going and then at the end BAM! it smacks you.
I did not enjoy the ending and I’m reluctant to try this author again.

Another typical romance novel - read 1/2 and moved on

Romances are not my thing. My young daughter insisted that I get it and pestered me to read it. The good news is that I was able to plow through it in just a couple of days. ("Just hold your breath and eat it.") The book is dross. It reminds me of what I imagined glorious adulthood would be when I daydreamed as a girl, playing with Barbies and crushing on Tiger Beat pin-ups. But, the grammar wasn't bad, and it's not overtly racist, so I gave it two stars.

I absolutely adored this book! I even cried on the train (very embarrassing). I would love to just pack up and move to beautiful Connecticut. (I wish).

I read this for the Feb. t-shirt/book promotion on-line. The author kept my interest and surprised me as well.

Another great story by Jane Green! I always look forward to her books because they are among the best in women's fiction. In addition, they are all so different; totally different stories with different endings. One never knows what to expect from this author. Great read!!

This book is very disappointing. How is it that Emma went to the hospital in the back of an ambulance then drove home afterwards. As far as her parents coming from England - well I think they must have used a time machine.

What starts out and progresses as a nice love story takes an abrupt turn for the worse. Out of nowhere, the author changes the pace and I was left thinking....did someone else write the ending?
