Allison survives an abusive marriage and establishes a successful career. However, guilt still festers from events in her turbulent youth. Now widowed, Allie goes home to Chicago. Thirty years ago, her abrupt departure left Jack with a broken heart and ripe for marriage to another woman who also abandoned him. When Allie returns, she and Jack have an opportunity to mend BROKEN THINGS (4). In this better-late-than-never romance, Andrea Boeshaar is careful to color between the lines by ensuring Jack's ex-wife passes away before things get serious between Allie and Jack. However, she offsets that bit of dogma with a bittersweet ending full of hope and promise, not pat answers. (Apr., 346 pp., $11.99)
