Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446530794, Hardcover)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.

Lee Emery is an empty nester, contentedly married to a man she has known forever and hunkering down in the house where she grew up. She believes she is happy occupying such a familiar emotional and physical space. But questions of the path not taken start to haunt her after she publishes a memoir of her deliciously eccentric grandmother with whom she traipsed through Europe at eighteen. It was then that Lee fell in love for the first time. Twenty-five years later, "what if" obsessions shake up her settled life. Should she have made a different choice--Simon--instead of the man now next to her? Struck once more by the lingering power of first love, she sets off a chain of events that catapults her back to Europe and to a second chance that she may or may not want to risk.
