Carly and Duncan have loved each other for years, but there is an ocean separating them and obligations continually keep them apart. Carly cannot leave her cousin during her illness. Duncan will not consider living anywhere but his Highland home. An old infatuation has turned into an obsession that threatens Carly's state of mind and Logan is offered hope that he might escape a lifetime sentence of being wheelchair bound.
Surrounding Carly are so many memories of her youth in Mineola - decendants of her grandmother's friends still live on Oak Street and now their lives are intermingling as their families grow and expand into what will be the future generations of those raised in Carly's town.
She and Duncan must face and conquer many obstacles in order to finally begin their lives together. But first Carly will have to be brave enough to say Farewell to Mineola.

About the Author

Born in New York City the author moved to Mineola with her family as a child. Growing up in this iconic town, playing hopscotch, riding bikes and having baby boomer friends was the all-American background that rooted Ms. Robertson to the 1950s and all of the nostalgia those memories still contain. Although she lives today in Southern California, Long Island, New York still resonates with the sounds of ice cream trucks and the laughter of childhood friends.
Ms. Robertson has been writing for most of her life, having published poetry and short stories over the years. In 2014, she published Welcome to Mineola the first book in the trilogy that now concludes with Farewell to Mineola. She studied writing at Pasadena City College, raised four children as a single mom and now enjoys life with her seven grandchildren.
She calls herself a storyteller, rather than a writer and says that her books are just a way to keep telling stories - a pastime she greatly enjoys.
