The early months of 1970 leave in their wake an array of indelible memories for single parent, Cameron Ross Gordon. All of them painful. In March, he sees his younger son confined for treatment following a nearly fatal OD. Two months later, he loses a blue-chip management job as a result of restructuring. Then, on the first day of summer, he's bedside when his fiancée dies of leukemia. What's next, he wonders?
The story opens as the second half of the year begins. With the string of agonizing events behind him, Cam feels as if his life is starting anew at forty. Resolute, he lends continuing support to his wayward son while beginning the process of searching for a new job--and that special woman who'll one day replace his late Danielle. In time, Cam's older son finds trouble of his own and is a factor in the mounting financial difficulties that have begun to stalk the Gordon family. As the summer wears on, and out of employment options, Cam joins an executive search firm. Unfortunately, paydays are few and far between and what money he earns does little to ease his burdens. Then, adding to his woes, his lease is canceled and he has no choice but to move from the home in Connecticut that has been the centerpiece of so many pleasant memories.
All the while, there are courtships. Among them are Megan, and Joanna, and a caring liaison with Erin, a local woman who helps Cam endure the most difficult time he's ever known. But it isn't until he makes a radical career change, and moves to rural New England, that an affable young schoolteacher, Abby Wallace, comes into his life and turns his head. In the end, Cam rebounds from his financial reversals, finds professional fulfillment, and knows happiness once again when his sons exhibit signs of becoming responsible adults and Abby is the woman at the bridge he will finally cross.
