When they were growing up,Susan and Philip meant everything to each other. In the spirited optimism of their youth, they swore that they would love each other forever - even if their lives forced them apart. She had plans to fight poverty in Central America, while he would try to succeed in Manhattan.
Philip made a promise: whatever happened to Susan, he would always be there for her. Little did he know that this promise would transform his life - that keeping it would mean opening his heart to an unwanted stranger... to someone who would first shatter his world, but would ultimately bring it together.
In a fast-paced and masterfully woven story, where nothing turns out as expected, in a tale that takes you from the eye of a hurricane to the depths of a soul, insightful and moving, Marc Levy pays tribute to the triumph of love.
