Forgoing the magic of first love with a high school boyfriend who was too wild to feel safe, Maggie sought out a predictable partner, a stable home, and a regular paycheck. When tragedy strikes her conventional suburban family, Maggie decides to face her fears. But when her travels reconnect her with the very same irresistible, thrill-seeking man she's spent thirty years trying to forget, Maggie becomes terrified that rushing into love and sharing his life may very well end in disaster. But ultimately, while Maggie tries to outrun her fears and painful memories of her past, fate will surprise her in the most astounding of ways, as she walks the tightrope between danger and courage, and between wisdom and love.
