In this moving novel by New York Times bestselling author Danielle Steel, a woman who wishes to avoid risk at all costs discovers that men who enjoy danger are the most exciting.
Mary Margaret Kelly grew up in the shadow of grief after a carefree childhood. When she was nine years old, her father, a daredevil Air Force pilot, died. Maggie witnessed her mother's struggle to reassemble their lives. Her mother warned her to be wary of daredevil men and to avoid risk at all costs as the family moved from city to city.
Maggie took her mother's advice and sought out all the things her mother had lost—a predictable partner, a stable home, and a regular paycheck—rather than pursuing the magic of first love with a high school boyfriend who was too wild to feel safe. She chose to marry a dependable, kind man who was also a successful accountant and husband. They had a son together and found happiness in a typical suburban life. Until another tragedy struck.
Maggie decides to face her fears and embarks on a whirlwind trip from San Francisco to Rome, Paris, and Monaco, now that she is on her own and feeling a sense of adventure for the first time. Maggie is terrified that rushing into love and sharing his life will end in disaster when her travels reconnect her with the same irresistible, thrill-seeking man she's spent thirty years trying to forget. Maggie will be surprised in the most amazing ways as she walks the tightrope between danger and courage, and between wisdom and love, as she tries to outrun her fears and painful memories of her past....
