Publisher's Summary

Newly widowed, still beautiful, and suddenly wealthy, Maggie Pearson Stearn has come home to Wisconsin to start a new life. The recent death of her much-loved husband has left an empty space in her heart. Back on familiar ground, with a gratifying business venture off to promising start, she finds a new zest for life in the rekindling of old friendships-and of her love affair with her high-school sweetheart. But he is married, and she finds herself marooned between two generations of selfishness and disapproval-her mother's and her daughter's.

Disappointed in this Rendition

I have read this book several times over the years, and was excited when I saw it on Audible. Unfortunately, the book was shortened, leaving out so many details. I finished listening, merely to see how much was left out. I would not recommend it. This was the first Audible book I have ever had this experience with.

Memorable - all time favorite

My friends and I read this MANY years ago when it first came out. Although we lived in various parts of the country, we converged on Door County and Egg Harbor for a “girls” weekend. That was the ULTIMATE reader’s club experience. We loved the book then and I have read its tattered covers many times since and have purchased copies for others. Saw it on Audible and purchased it and listened yet another time. I was not disappointed and neither will you be if you listen to this wonderful novel.
