The New York Times bestselling author of The Rules of Magic offers “an affecting love story, laced with humor”(Booklist) that tells the tale of a man and a woman so consumed with helping others that they are in danger of failing in their duty to themselves.
Natalie, a therapist, is in love with Carter—but he is deeply dedicated to his environmental work, and the fate of their relationship takes a backseat to the fate of the planet. Then a new client walks into Natalie's office. He is an intriguing man, with an incredible tale to tell—and under his influence, she faces questions about the direction of her own passion, the true meaning of commitment...and the possibility of finding the love she seeks right in her own backyard.
