Miles Ryan's life seemed to end the day his wife was killed in a hit-and-run accident two years ago. Missy had been his first love, and Miles fervently believes she will be his last. As a deputy sheriff in the North Carolina town of New Bern, Miles Ryan not only grieves for Missy, but longs to bring the unknown driver to justice.Then Miles meets Sarah Andrews. The second grade teacher of his son Jonah, Sarah had left Baltimore after a difficult divorce to start over in the gentler surroundings of New Bern. Perhaps it is her own emotional wounds that make her sensitive to the hurt she first sees in Jonah's eyes, and then his father's. Tentatively, Sarah and Miles reach out to each other. Soon, they are both laughing for the first time in years...and falling in love. Neither will be able to guess how closely linked they are to a shocking secret - one that will force them to question everything they ever believed in...and make a heartbreaking choice that will change their lives forever.

Professional reviews

"Deputy Sheriff Miles Ryan struggles to learn how to live with the death of his wife, Missy, who died in a hit-and-run accident. As he searches for the driver of that car, he confronts his relationship with his son, Jonah, and his burgeoning love of Sarah Andrews. As this combination mystery and love story unfolds, L.J. Ganser takes the listener through the ups and downs of love, the adrenaline rushes of law enforcement, and the investigation of this particular crime. Sparks weaves a captivating tale, told by the hit-and-run driver, who slowly tells all. As Ganser takes on the identity of the story's narrator, the listener roots for the discovery of truth and for justice to prevail. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
