Trapped in a loveless marriage at the turn of the twentieth century, a British noblewoman finds renewed passion with a young architect  Lady Sara Longford’s once-storybook marriage is falling apart. Her husband, Ben Cochrane, a New York entrepreneur, married Sara in the hopes that a high-society English wife would improve his odds of entering New York’s uppermost social strata, but so far those ambitions have remained unfulfilled, and the relationship has soured. But things change when Sara meets up-and-coming draftsman Alex McKie, hired to build Cochrane’s garish summer home in Newport, Rhode Island. When Cochrane sends Sara away to Newport to oversee the construction, Sara finds herself increasingly drawn to the charming Alex. As their relationship develops, Sara must chose between the safe life she knows and the forbidden love that threatens to destroy everything she holds dear.

A remarkable story of everlasting love, about two couples whose lives intersect in profound and surprising ways,
in the tradition of Nicholas Sparks's beloved #1 New York Times bestselling first novel, The Notebook.Ira Levinson is in trouble. Ninety-one years old and stranded and injured after a car crash, he struggles to retain consciousness until a blurry image materializes beside him: his beloved wife Ruth, who passed away nine years ago. Urging him to hang on, she forces him to remain alert by recounting the stories of their lifetime together - how they met, the precious paintings they collected together, the dark days of WWII and its effect on them and their families. Ira knows that Ruth can't possibly be in the car with him, but he clings to her words and his memories, reliving the sorrows and everyday joys that defined their marriage.

A few miles away, at a local bull-riding event, a Wake Forest College senior's life is about to change. Recovering from a recent break-up, Sophia Danko meets a young cowboy named Luke, who bears little resemblance to the privileged frat boys she has encountered at school. Through Luke, Sophia is introduced to a world in which the stakes of survival and success, ruin and reward -- even life and death - loom large in everyday life. As she and Luke fall in love, Sophia finds herself imagining a future far removed from her plans -- a future that Luke has the power to rewrite . . . if the secret he's keeping doesn't destroy it first.

Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common, and who are separated by years and experience. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.
