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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Predictable The book was completely predictable from start to finish. Even the supposed "twist" was foreshawdowed in a very obvious way from about the middle of the book onwards. Further, some parts of the book seemed rushed, while others dragged on. Too much focus on description, while the storyline lacked depth. Do not waste your time. The book is not worth reading.
