Synopses & Reviews
From the wildly beloved bestselling author Fern Michaels, a haunting portrait of love and war—and the passionate woman swept into an epic of desire, heartbreak, and destiny.
Casey Adams, a dedicated nurse, loses her heart overseas to idealistic officer Mac Carlin, the rebellious scion of a wealthy family. Then tragedy strikes. Believing that Casey has died in an explosion, Mac returns to San Francisco grief-stricken, to a life he didn’t want but now accepts. And yet Casey is still alive, keeping Mac in the dark after learning that he kept from her a shattering secret. Once home, Casey finds healing in the hands and heart of a brilliant plastic surgeon and forges ahead under a new name and with a new career. But fate charts a collision course for her and Mac, now a U.S. senator who doesn’t recognize the compelling TV producer getting under his skin. For Casey, this full-circle journey cannot be denied, no matter what. For only by reclaiming the woman she was and the life she lost can she embrace the magic of unexpected love.
A tale of love amid war, of love against all odds, as a beautiful half-French, half-American nurse and the idealistic officer she loves struggle to survive in the chaos of Vietnam . . .
