About this item

When a single mom becomes an "empty nester," she spreads her wings to rediscover herself--and her passions--in this heartwarming novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber.

Jenna Boltz's life is at a crossroads. She's spent the last twenty years raising her two children on her own, and she loves her job as a Seattle ICU nurse. But now that she's officially an "empty nester," Jenna can't help but wonder what her future holds. When her kids, Paul and Allie, and her dear friend Maura push her to begin dating again, Jenna is skeptical. Will she ever find the "we'll always have Paris" kind of love that she's always yearned for?

Enter Dr. Rowan Lancaster, who saves the day when Jenna's elderly mother suffers an accident in her home. Though he keeps to himself, Jenna can't help but notice his kindness--he, on the other hand, is immediately smitten with her. Still fearing a romantic relationship, she insists they remain friends--until she realizes that he may be more worthy of a Paris experience than she thought. But one day, when her children approach her with shocking news, Jenna begins to question everything.

Learning to put herself first again, Jenna realizes that believing in love can take us beyond our wildest dreams.
