This review is from: The Long Way Home (Harlequin Large Print Super Romance) (Mass Market Paperback)
A New England summer brings lawyer Natalie Kimball face to face with her high-school past when a young man was killed in a car accident, which changed everyone's life. Now she has returned to the seaside town to join the family law firm, and old memories are stirred. Maureen Cole is getting married and asks Natalie to be one of her bridesmaids, as a partner for her brother Bruce. Bruce was held responsible for his friend's drunken driving and after the Naval Academy has led a life on the road as a computer consultant. Accustomed to flashing platinum cards to get what he wants, Bruce comes to learn that life doesn't always work that way.

Natalie is hiding her hearing impairment. She is good at lip-reading but Bruce notices her extra-loud phone ringing and the subtitled TV. Her father's assumption that she should stick to routine office work; Natalie plans a meet-and-greet party for potential clients. Bruce's grandfather's sudden-onset Alzheimer's disease complicates matters and he takes the old man fishing to try to restore some connections. Thrown together with Natalie, they enjoy the coast and a Sandcastle Sculpture Festival, and the young people come to admire each other, but Bruce still plans to leave.

This is a well-thought-out tale about a brave young woman determined to realise her potential, and a high-achieving man who has been refusing to face censure and so has a hollow life. Learning to care for others makes all the difference and enables them to find happiness.
