The author of the critically acclaimed Mail and Host Family delivers her break-through novel, a funny yet provocative tale about one woman's inability to forget her first love. Who can ever forget the lightning strike of first love? Lee Emery has certainly never forgotten Simon, the boy who stole her heart when she was 18 and traipsing through Europe with her Auntie Mame of a grandmother. But that was 25 years ago. Since then, she has married another man, had three children and lives a nice, comfortable life in the very house where she grew up. But after writing a memoir of that summer, in which she describes falling in love with Simon, Lee can't get him out of her mind. "What about the path not taken?" she wonders. "What if?" When the opportunity arises for her to see Simon once again, Lee realizes that she must take the trip--and take the chance that everything in her life may never be the same.
