From the author of Things Remembered and The Year Everything Changed comes a moving novel about love that lasts forever

What's in the past is over and done with . . . or is it?

Sixteen years ago Carly Hargrove made a decision that would irrevocably alter her life. With little comprehension of the life-long consequences of her actions, she trades her own future happiness to protect the man she's loved since kindergarten, David Montgomery.

With an ocean separating them, Carly builds a life for herself without David. She's the mother of three, lives in a beautiful house, and is married to a man who comes home every night—even if most of those nights he drinks too much. What more could she want?

Her answer arrives on a cold fall day when David shows up at her door. In town for his father's funeral, he has come to see Carly one last time, hoping to rid himself of the anger that still consumes him.

Instead, he is drawn into a web of secrets that rekindles the fierce need he once felt to protect Carly. He becomes caught up in her life in a way he never could have imagined—a way that will bind him to her forever.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Carly's Gift Carl's Gift, I was really into this book up until Andrea goes to England. That's when I start finding the book dragging to the bed about the same issue over and over, how Carly would deny her true love over a narcissistic self hate mentality from something her past. I started to disengage from Carly when she found out the terrible treatment he inflicted on Andrea and still chose to stay with the man who she said loved her so much he helped in when she was in trouble. What she did was allow one abuser to control to marry another abuser to control not only her but her daughter. It really lost it for me when she kept making the same mistake over and over again, in the same lame excuse to protect everyone else, really when she just couldn't forgive herself for what wasn't her fault. Terrible writing style, I felt the story just wrapped up to nicely at the end.
