Following the acclaimed success of Souvenir, Therese Fowler’s captivating new novel will resonate with every woman who has wondered what if—as a heartfelt drama of buried secrets and daring passion unfolds.
Celebrity talk show host Blue Reynolds is the queen of daytime television—she is smart, funny, and as down-to-earth as her adoring fans. In the eyes of the world, she has it all. But no one knows about the secret she has harbored for the last twenty years—a secret that could destroy her image, her reputation, and her career. Twenty years ago, she gave birth to a son and put him up for adoption through illegal channels. And every day since, she’s been filled with regret. Now Blue has hired a private investigator to find her son, knowing full well the consequences.
A week in Key West to do her show on location brings Blue a much-needed change of pace—and an unexpected reunion with an old flame, Mitch Forrester. Helping him launch a television series may help her recapture the kind of genuine romance and affection long missing from her life. But it also means having to deal with Mitch’s disapproving son, Julian, who is only nine years younger than Blue. Emotionally battered from his years as a war photographer in the world’s most dangerous hotspots, Julian struggles to get close to his father while making his disdain for Blue crystal clear—which makes his desire for her all the more shocking.
As serendipity and scandal collide, Therese Fowler’s passionate, illuminating novel takes a dramatic turn deep into our own hearts, as the healing power of love—family love, romantic love, andself-love—transforms pain and regrets into promises and second chances.
Meg Powell and Carson McKay grew up side by side on their families’ farms, joined by an ever-deepening love. Everyone in their small rural community in northern Florida expected that Meg and Carson would always be together. But then, at twenty-one, Meg was confronted with a marriage proposal she could not refuse, and her life changed forever. Seventeen years later, Meg’s marriage has slipped into routine as she juggles the demands of her medical practice, the needs of her widowed father, and the whims of her rebellious teenage daughter, Savannah, who is confronting her burgeoning sexuality in a dangerous manner, pushing her mother away just when she needs her most. Meanwhile, after a long time away, Carson is returning home to prepare for his wedding to a younger woman. As Carson tries to determine where his heart and future lie, Meg makes a shocking discovery that will upset the balance of everyone around her. Souvenir is an unforgettable story, a searing yet redemptive drama that illuminates the possibility of second chances, the naïve choices of youth, the tensions within families, and the transforming power of love.
