Secrets ruin lives, and lies protect those secrets...

Wanting to escape her life in New York City before starting medical school in the fall, Anna Dillon convinces her best friend Dante to travel with her to Thailand on a medical mission. While volunteering in a coastal village recently ravaged by a tsunami, Anna meets Jude Grayson. They share an instant attraction that leads to a brief, passionate affair. When she has to rush home for a family emergency, he promises to stay in touch.

But Jude never calls, and Anna tries desperately to forget him.

Five years pass, and Anna finally moves on with Dante after giving up hope that Jude will ever return-until they come face to face again in a chance encounter. Reeling, Anna discovers the life-altering secret of why Jude never contacted her-and why they can't be together. But the passion that ignited between them on an exotic beach years ago never died, making it impossible to stay away from each other.

And Dante? Anna discovers that the friend she grew to love-and trust-has a secret of his own.

Drama Queen extraordinaire This story was well-written, it just couldn't keep my attention very well... I found that I couldn't relate to the characters, due to the over-the-topness of the story line. I just couldn't understand the back and forth between strict Catholicism and the lack of conscience with the decisions made. The book is written well, full of plenty of emotion, just seemed, at times, too dramatic. It won't deter me from reading another from Ms. Brae.

Could not put it down. Had a hell of a good cry. I recommend it.
