The future seemed so clear...until lightning struck.
by Louise Gaylord
In Her Early Thirties, Julia Fairchild is Well on the Path to a Perfect Life. Raised in upper-class Manhattan society, she has settled in small- town New Mexico, created a prospering counseling practice and is preparing to marry her love, Mac Brantley, a successful doctor and the younger son of a prominent local family. But everything starts to unravel the day Mac "kidnaps" Julia and flies her to an idyllic wilderness setting for a romantic mid-week picnic. Lightning strikes—literally—and though her injury is minor, everything begins to change. Julia's exploration of herself and the future she once thought so secure is engaging, intriguing…and full of surprises.
