Publisher's Summary

An ill-fated romance between a girl from the wrong side of the tracks and a boy from the richest family in a small upstate New York town has dire consequences for three generations. A gold ring, inscribed with "I Stay Near You", triggers a complex chain of events as it's passed down from one generation to the next.

The perfect story

I absolutely love the little book. It goes fast and I've read it again and again, from a young teenager to adulthood. It never gets old. Perfect perfect story.
