Brad Cutler,
twenty-eight, is a rising star at his New York ad agency, about to marry
the girl of his dreams. Anyone would agree he has it all—a great
career, a beautiful and loving fiancee, and a fairy tale life ahead of
him … when memories of a high school girlfriend begin to torment him.

Lost innocence and one very difficult choice flood his conscience, and
he is no longer sure what the future will bring except for this: he must
go back to the shores of Holden Beach in search of his first love, and a
forgiveness neither of them has ever known. Three people must work
through the repercussions of a decision made long ago before any of them
can look toward a new future.
