When a trip to the emergency room on Christmas Eve brings Callie Winwood together with Will Tremaine the man she once thought she d marry but has not seen in twenty-five years their chance meeting reignites feelings each has harbored for more than two decades. Their journey toward one another is anything but simple, however. Following the death of his wife, Joanna, two years earlier, which he believes he caused, Will has devoted himself to his two young children.
As Will and Callie struggle with their own personal histories of love and loss, they must also navigate the complex emotions of Will s children who still grieve for their mother. At the same time, they must struggle with Joanna s family, who refuse to accept that she is gone, and will do anything to avoid facing the truth.
Just as Callie and Will find happiness at last, they are forced apart when a scandal threatens to unravel their respective families. Putting their children above all else, Callie and Will separate willingly but painfully until an unexpected ally intervenes.
A Foolish Consistency explores the damage � emotional and otherwise � wrought by unacknowledged fear and grief, as well as the futility of trying to control the uncontrollable. Yet, it is also a passionate love story, and a statement on the power of hope, the importance of forgiveness, and, ultimately, the joy of redemption.

I received a copy from the author for which I say thank you. For me, this was a powerful second-chance story. There are elements that mirror my own life one way or another. The positive attitude of Will that everything would work out no matter what endeared him to me. His life had not been an easy one and he was willing to own up to his mistakes. His love for his children was strong and he wanted them to remember their mother and stay connected. As for Callie, she had the strength to live on her own after dealing with her cheating ex-husband and to finally accept the positive outlook of Will. I enjoyed the relationship between her and her grown children. This is a second-chance story of an older couple, showing that true love can find us at any time. It shows the struggles of bringing baggage and children into a relationship. During this story, I laughed, I cried, I fretted, and I sighed. Thank you for an enjoyable journey.
