Publisher Description

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.


The one that got away. Every girl has one, right?

Mine was a charming, British aristocrat who turned my world upside down one summer. 

From the moment I first spotted Leo in the distance through my binoculars, I’d been captivated. I certainly never expected to find a man showering outside of the property across the bay in his birthday suit.

Then I noticed his housemate staring back at me with binoculars of his own—watching me watching Leo. 

That made for an interesting conversation starter when I inevitably ran into them. 

Turned out, the handsome Brits were only renting that house for the summer in my seaside town.

Leo and I formed an instant connection, even though we were technically opposites by all appearances. I taught him how to dig for clams, and he taught me that not all wealthy and powerful guys are pretentious.

Despite knowing he was totally wrong for me, I couldn’t seem to stay away.

It was a wild and crazy few months. And before I knew it, we’d fallen in love. 

We both had one wish: more time together.

But Leo had obligations back home. He lived a life I’d never fit into. And I was going to law school. So, we decided to end it and never look back. 

A part of me always felt like I’d let my soulmate walk away.

I believed our story was over.

Until five years later when he sent me a letter that shook me to my core.  

I’d thought my world was turned upside down that first summer?

Well, I knew nothing yet.

Great love story

I wish I could have connected more with Felicity as a main character. That’s the only thing I struggled with but the story was beautiful.

Just, Wow

This was an emotionally powerful read. I had to put it down at one point and pick up after a bit.
When Felicity comes home for the summer she never expects to find Leo, or have the most intense and searing relationship of her life. But Leo has family obligations that would crush Felicity if she joined him in his life, so they vow to stay together for the summer and let go. But that’s so very much harder to say than do, and the reality of separation is heart wrenching. Fate intervenes in the form of a letter, but will it be kind to them?
