When sheltered American good girl Allyson first encounters laid-back Dutch actor Willem at an underground performance of Twelfth Night, there's an undeniable spark. So when fate brings them together a second time, Allyson takes an uncharacteristic leap, changes course, and follows Willem to Paris. After just one day together, the spark bursts into a flame...until Allyson wakes up after a whirlwind day shocked to discover that Willem is gone. A life upended in one day turns into a year of self-discovery as Allyson embarks on a journey to break free from a lifetime of limits in order to find her true passions, and maybe even a true love.

"Take Paris as the background, add an endearing story of young love, and top it off with superb narration. C'est magnifique! Allyson, who has just graduated from high school, is on a "teen tours" trip through Europe when she meets Willem, a Dutch actor. He convinces her to spend "just one day" in Paris with him before she returns home. That day will affect Allyson's entire first year at college, at first in a negative way and then in a more positive way. With a youthful-sounding voice, narrator Kathleen McInerney transforms Allyson from a vulnerable "good girl" who can't speak up for herself to a strong, young woman who knows what she wants out of life. McInerney carries listeners through the uplifting story, capturing every character and emotion. M.M.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
