Brian decides to throw away all he has ever worked for and leaves the city to live in the charming small town of Linden Corners.

My absolute favorite book in the whole world! Very romantic, very sad, even though he tells you the ending in the beginning I kept hoping it would be different. I read it, then went out and bought it just so I could have it, and I am going to read it again! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743407377, Hardcover)

With a lyrical tale of love and loss, Joseph Pittman joins the ranks of beloved authors such as Elizabeth Berg and Nicholas Sparks as he carries readers on an epic journey -- through the joys and tears of a life renewed -- and chronicles a very special love.

At thirty-four, Brian Duncan has it all. The trendy Manhattan life, a fast-track job at a high-powered PR firm, a gorgeous fiancee -- a coworker with a future as exciting as his own. Then, in a single moment of deception, Brian's world crumbles. Bitterly betrayed, he decides to toss away all he has ever worked for and leave the city's busy streets behind.

He finds himself irresistibly drawn to the road. On a hillside along New York's Hudson River Valley, Brian sees a giant windmill, its sails transfixing in their beauty. And running down the green hill toward the magnificent windmill is a lovely little girl, her blond hair floating in the wind. Her name is Janey, and she and her quietly alluring mother Annie, who owns the windmill, strike a chord in Brian's heart.

It is a turning point in Brian's life, as he finds the small-town charms of Linden Corners comforting. He stays a day, and then another, and before long he has become another resident of this sleepy little world. Is it the windmill that has inspired him, or Annie Sullivan, whose elusive quality matches Brian's own questions about life? Even as Annie and Brian feel their relationship deepening into passion, the uncertainties they battle loom large -- perhaps too large. Through the force of nature and the hand of fate, Brian learns that love comes in unexpected ways.
