"Book 1 in the Hampshire Chronicles series"
It's a trip back to the past for Lydia Appleton when she finally returns to England after making a new life for herself in America. She remembers so much, has missed so much and eases her homesickness in the sights, sounds and smells of the land of her birth. Although a lot has become shadowed by time, Gareth Knightley never quite disappeared from her thoughts. His memory lurked quietly in her heart for too long. Teenagers back then, they're adults now, and when they meet once more, it's on a different level-more sensual, passionate and emotional. To her surprise, their attraction is absolute. Lydia has decisions to make, conflicts to resolve and most of all she needs to discover if Gareth is part of her past or her future. For Lydia, Lyndhurst is more than a picturesque village in the New Forest. It's at the crossroads of her life. She must decide which is the right path to follow.
