“This is the darkest story that I ever heard and all my life I have laboured not to tell it…” There is no love like your first love, and Ben Wade's love for Kelli Troy should have lasted a lifetime.

Ben, in particular, has never been able to move on. Because he is the only one who knows exactly what happened that summer long ago.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
