Ernestine had it all. Youth, good looks, and money; and she was married to the love of her life, Jonathan. But one day it all changed when the plans they had made exploded in a fiery car crash and left Ernestine reeling with raw emotions. Her sorrow was a huge painful lump inside her and the only things left were the bitter sores of an aching heart. Alone, suffering, and terribly sick she was convinced she would never find tender love and peaceful happiness again.Life threw her a life line in the form of Eric, a dark-haired, broody looking man with the most beautiful hazel eyes, trimmed beard and a pair of well-formed legs. He was a friend of Jonathan’s and visited them once in a while. After Ernestine’s close call with death, he took her to Oregon. Life was good until a young woman showed up at the door and a misunderstanding between Ernestine and Eric suddenly ended their budding relationship. Ernestine fled to London where she found a job in an art gallery and worked there as assistant for several months. Reconnecting with her childhood friend and meeting his real dad, she was torn between two countries and two men. When fate finally brought her back to the United States, she realized that it was up to her to decide where life would take her.
