Justine Crandall finds her husband, Andrew, cheating on her at their cabin and immediately drives away to begin divorce proceedings. Caught in the act, Andrew pursues her, goes over a cliff and winds up in a coma with little hope of survival. Though her heart is broken, Justine continues to visit the hospital each day and to lend her support to Andrew's mother.

Then an old high school flame, Dalton Ramsey, participates in a book signing at Justine's bookstore. Her whole life changes. Together they rediscover what they once had on a much deeper, yet forbidden, level. Now torn between a cheating husband who needs her and a wonderful man who loves her, Justine must figure out which path to follow. (ST. MARTIN'S GRIFFIN, Feb., 360 pp., $13.95)
