Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jimmy's Girl is the story of first love lost and of the price to be paid for finding it again.

Ever wonder what became of your first love?

Emily did.

Emily Hudson should be happy. She has achieved modest success as a painter and lives a good suburban life with her husband and four children. But one day, somewhere between the train schedules, orthodontist appointments, and bake sales, Emily stopped and remembered who she was when she was sixteen and how she felt when she found love with James Moran- the young man she kissed beneath her parents' Ping-Pong table-the boy who made her Jimmy's girl.

It's been thirty years since they went their separate ways. But Emily can't stop herself from thinking about Jimmy . . . nor can she resist using the Internet to find his address and telephone number . . . and placing the phone call that will change both of their lives forever.

Connecting again, Emily and Jimmy risk the lives they've made for themselves and happiness of their respective families when they decide to meet. In one unforgettable weekend, they will learn what went wrong between them and find out together if first love deserves a second chance.

Told from the perspectives of both Jimmy and Emily, each in turn revealing their lies and truths, this remarkable first novel shows with tenderness and heart-rending accuracy the differences between what men and women say, and what men and women hear. The debut of a writer of extraordinary talent, Jimmy's Girl is a novel for anyone who ever left love behind and dared to wonder "what if?"
