TWICE HER HUSBAND
Recently widowed, Ginny Franklin is building a new life for herself and her two young children when her first husband, Luke Tucker, re-enters the picture in dramatic fashion. Old emotions and a painful secret stand between them. Although it's clear that Luke has changed in the dozen years they've been apart, Ginny's fearful of dredging up the past. But every day, Luke becomes a bigger part of her present -- and soon, she has no choice. Mary J. Forbes' Twice Her Husband (4.5) avoids the usual reunion-story pitfalls, offering instead a completely believable scenario that's highlighted by excellent characterization and conflict.
