M. Kate Quinn about this book: Single forty-something Violet Terhune's worst nightmare has just happened. Her perfect, perky little sister, Penny, is engaged and now that she's snagged herself the ideal husband-to-be, a dentist who comes from a long line of dentists,of all things, Violet's mom is putting on the pressure for her to find a man. Worse, Penny and her fiancé have decided to have their week-long wedding celebration at the Vermont lodge where the Terhune family had spent their summers while the girls were growing up. The lodge is now owned by Violet's first love, Logan Monroe, who cheated on her and broke her heart years ago. Penny presents Violet with a wrapped present on the night when she asks her to be the Maid of Honor--Violet's long-forgotten diary found in an old box in the attic. The entries bring it all back, the love she and Logan had come to know, the romance of their youth, and the pain of his betrayal. And, now returning to the piney woods of Vermont, Violet reexamines her life and her relationships. Her long-time strained relationship with her overbearing Italian mother takes on a new challenge when mom starts showing signs of forgetfulness. The possibility that mom's life may be changing forever forges a new bond between the sisters. But, time has not erased the core feelings of Logan and Violet and with each minute they spend together they are reminded of what they lost. Do they dare to take a chance at love again?
