This is my first Janet Dailey and I found it refreshingly simple and heart-tugging at the same time. Gina is a young, naive girl when she first meets the older, more sophisticated Rhyder. Gina falls in love with him but after one fateful night and a misunderstanding, they go their separate ways. Just when Gina feels her life is hers again, they meet again after 10 years and this time it is Rhyder who pursues Gina. Janet Dailey captures the essence of an idyllic summer in Maine as she meant to do. As a short novel, it is a very quick read that is worthwhile.
