From the author of Maybe in Another Life—named a People Magazine pick—comes a breathtaking new love story about a woman unexpectedly forced to choose between the husband she has long thought dead and the fiancé who has finally brought her back to life.

In her twenties, Emma Blair marries her high school sweetheart, Jesse. They build a life for themselves, far away from the expectations of their parents and the people of their hometown in Massachusetts. They travel the world together, living life to the fullest and seizing every opportunity for adventure.

On their first wedding anniversary, Jesse is on a helicopter over the Pacific when it goes missing. Just like that, Jesse is gone forever.

Emma quits her job and moves home in an effort to put her life back together. Years later, now in her thirties, Emma runs into an old friend, Sam, and finds herself falling in love again. When Emma and Sam get engaged, it feels like Emma’s second chance at happiness.

That is, until Jesse is found. He’s alive, and he’s been trying all these years to come home to her. With a husband and a fiancé, Emma has to now figure out who she is and what she wants, while trying to protect the ones she loves.

Who is her one true love? What does it mean to love truly?

Emma knows she has to listen to her heart. She’s just not sure what it’s saying.

  • Slow build

    By MrsLevel
    The end of the book is wonderful, but all the details leading up to it were long winded. I almost gave up 100 or so pages in, but I am glad I didn’t.
  • Beautiful

    Very predictable but beautiful nonetheless. So many memorable quotes that change your opinion on true love and grief.
  • Raw and beautiful!

    This is the fourth book I’ve read by Taylor Jenkins Reid. Although my favorite is still Daisy Jones and the Six, I think this one is now my second favorite. I read this book in two days! I couldn’t put it down! I had to find out who she was going to pick! Jesse or Sam? Is there such a thing as two true loves, or can there truly only be one?
  • I don’t even know where to begin..

    By Jennixvxv
    All I can say is that this book was amazing. Just by reading the first sentence of the book. I knew this was gonna be an emotional ride and it totally was, but this was a roller coaster that I didn’t regret going on. This book is like a blessing and a curse. It like stepping into a nightmare, but realizing that ur safe once u open ur eyes. Idk I sound stupid, but this WAS AND IS THE BOMB.

    So it appears that to get by a publisher’s screen you need to write stories about pathetic obsessive characters. This story is sadly conforming to that with weak characters who really need to get a life. Poor Sam, he is stuck with the weakest character of all. Oh well, yawn yawn yawn!
