"He had been rooted at the threshold for far too long...a visitor wanting to belong. A journeyman peering out into the wild frontier, consumed by the passion of want.

Overview

"He had been rooted at the threshold for far too long...a visitor wanting to belong. A journeyman peering out into the wild frontier, consumed by the passion of want. Life at its essence was malleable, as it should be, and he had not properly embraced it. He had merely observed its warm shadow falling across his face from time to time, never before possessing either the conviction or the passion to bottle it."

And so begins the story of Sam Fenton-a man who, in his youth, fell completely in love with Kathryn Ackart, and she with him. Their future together was certain and imminently bright. But Sam, confronted by a perilous choice, made the decision to leave his hometown of Meylor, North Carolina and his life with Kathryn behind. A sacrifice that would leave him lost along his chosen path, and Kathryn haunted by the specter of what should have been. Years later, the unanticipated arrival of an ordinary blue envelope offers Sam a fragile hope of redemption. It will lead him back to Meylor, and a confrontation with new choices, old ghosts, and ultimately, Kathryn. But some wounds aren't easily healed, and some hearts never mend. Familiar faces turn strange and past relationships will be tested. What ensues is an unforgettable journey through the fires of regret and heartache. And an exploration of the shadows of the past, of the self, and the distant possibility of a love once thought beyond resurrection.

An Image of Us is a tenderly written, emotionally charged love story, which challenges the reader to question just how far would you travel, how much would you sacrifice for a chance at redemption. It is a compelling novel that will undoubtedly linger with readers long after the final page has been turned.
