I come from a large family but my circle is small. My parents are probably the most compassionate individuals on the planet. My mom, Penny, is a tattoo artist and my dad, Seth, is an accountant. They’ve spent the last fifteen years making every effort possible to ensure my well-being. The term is relative, though.


When I was ten my Grandma Sarah had a stroke while driving my older brother William and I home from little league practice. The stroke killed her. The accident killed my brother. I spent each day since, wishing it had been me instead of my brother that died. Until the day my daughter was born.

My name is Monroe Simon Chevalier and I am a survivor. I didn’t do anything noble. I didn’t fight the good fight and come out on top. It was chance. I’m not ungrateful for the life I have. I know exactly what I have to live for. The problem is… I don’t feel alive.

Augustus Carrick Caffrey V, that's what they named me. First, that's what they call me. Now, you might be wondering, being the fifth from a line of proud Irishmen, why I'm known by first. Well, I'm the first Augustus, in our family, to grace this world with blonde hair, not red. First born out of a set of twins, Wren, my sister, was born twenty minutes after. She's always been the stubborn one, takes after our dad. I was the first to talk and walk between us. I'm also the first out all five Augustus Caffrey's to go to college and have no plans to run the family's bar. That's really more my sister's thing, always has been. Told you, she takes after our dad. Anyway, the truth of it is, my cousin, Tansy, is the one who called me First, first and it stuck.

I sometimes wish she hadn't been the one to get it started. I can't help but think of her every time someone says my name. First cousins, only a few months apart, we grew up close. Our moms are sisters by adoption and they couldn't be more opposite from each other. While my mom is insanely in love with my dad, her mom is, last I heard, working on husband number seven. Don't get me wrong, my mom can get crazy when the situation calls for it, but Aunt Silvia is unstable in every aspect of her life. Tansy mostly stayed with our grandparents, but spent every summer with us. She and Wren never really got along, because my sister is mean as hell and has been for as long as I can remember. We bonded over books and joined forces against my sister's torments as often as possible. We were close, until we got a little too curious with each other one summer night and she ended up going to live with her dad in Michigan. 

Because, coincidentally, the girl who gave me my name, was also my first.

The true measure of a person's worth lies not within what they can offer you but what you have to offer them. No matter how desirable, are they worth your time, patience, forgiveness, loyalty, friendship, love, respect, understanding, compassion, trust? If not, they are worth more than you have to offer. They deserve for you to let them go.


Charlotte Roberts and Augustus (Auggie) Caffrey may never have known each other if it were not for William Caffrey. They would have simply moved on with their own lives without the anger and resentment that followed when William fell for Charlotte almost six years ago.

Under the pretense of introducing Trace Delgado, her soon to be fiancé, to her adoptive parents, Emerson and Amila Roberts, Charlotte arrives back in her small southern hometown to personally collect on the forgiveness William promised he would give her if she ever returned.


Spending his days at the hospital with his brother William and his nights tending bar at The Dog House, Auggie knows it is only a matter of time before he loses the brother he has tried his entire life to protect.


When Auggie finds out Charlotte is in town, to no doubt torment his brother on his death bed, he wants her to stay as far away from William as possible. All Charlotte wants is to be forgiven and move on with a clear conscience. While William's dying wish is to ensure the two people he cares about most step outside of their comfort zones and see that life is not as cut and dry as they think it is. 


Charlotte's guilt and Auggie's brotherly devotion compel them to, secretly, follow through with William's last requests forcing them to begrudgingly spend time together. The more time they spend together, the closer they become. And the harder it is to keep what is taking place between them secret. 


Late nights visits and stolen moments cause Charlotte to fall hard. But when a reminder of what brought them together stops Auggie dead in his tracks, he starts to question how far he's willing to go with someone who was his brother's first.


*Charlotte is a standalone featuring characters from Enduring Everything*
