Summary
In this novel the author has created a sometimes poignant, sometimes hilarious tale of attraction and loyalty, jealousy and grief. It is a classic love story with some modern twists. Janet Rossi is very smart and unusually attractive, an aide to the governor of Massachusetts, but she suffers from an illness that makes her, as she puts it, "not exactly a good long-term investment." Jake Entwhistle is a few years older, a carpenter and portrait painter, smart and good-looking too, but with a shadow over his romantic history. After meeting by accident, literally, when Janet backs into Jake's antique truck, they begin a love affair marked by courage, humor, a deep and erotic intimacy and modern complications. Working with the basic architecture of the love story genre, the author, a former carpenter known for his novels about family life breaks new ground with a fresh look at modern romance, taking liberties with the classic design, adding original lines of friendship, spirituality, and laughter, and, of course, probing the mystery of love
Summary
Left adrift after the tragic death of the woman he loved, Jake finds himself falling for the beautiful woman who backs into his truck, despite the fact that she is involved in an affair with the governor and suffers from cystic fibrosis
