Description
The spellbinding story of a love triangle, and the heartbreak and elation that come with the search for true love. Pete Sorenson is an orphan who spends his childhood shuttling from one foster home to another. The only constant is his memory of Barney, a friend he had to leave behind after his mother died. Pete keeps the image of Barney forever in his mind, as a kind of guardian angel he can turn to, especially in times of trouble. The Pete's life takes a turn found only in fairy tales: a wealthy uncle whisks him away to enjoy the kind of life only money and education make possible. Pete goes to law school, and it is there that he meets Annie. Smart and funny, Annie is the best friend Pete has had since Barney. But it seems Annie is not to be the love of Pete's life. For in his early thirties, Pete falls in love with Maddie Stern across a crowded room. Maddie had been a foster child too, and along with her breathtaking beauty she seems to understand Pete as no one else can. But just days before the wedding, Maddie disappears. His world shattered, Pete reaches out to the one person who has always been there for him. Annie leaves behind her life in Boston to pick up the pieces for Pete, both of them knowing that Maddie must be out there somewhere . . . . From the Hardcover edition.

At his side is Annie, the perfect princess of a companion, ready to support him in every way, gracefully, patiently. But then Maddie Stern enters Pete's life.

Together, they try to solve the mystery of Maddie. And together, they discover life is always unexpected...
