From the Back Cover:

They say you never forget your first love...and it's true.

Eighteen years ago when he was still a boy, Harry made a decision that drove him from the place—and the girl—he loved. Somehow in the ensuing years, he made a new life for himself and found a semblance of peace. Yet the memories of his past and of the warm, carefree girl with the laughing eyes have haunted his every waking moment.

The years were not kind to sweet and pretty Judy Roberts. Forsaken at a tender age, cruelly disowned by her family, she has had to make difficult decisions in order to survive—guarding a shameful secret and damned by an unfairly earned reputation: “born bad.”

Now Harry is coming home. There is grave danger and painful truths here, but he needs to make things right no matter what the cost. More than that, Harry needs to be forgiven—and he can only pray that he's not too late.

About the Author:

Josephine Cox was born in Blackburn, one of ten children. At the age of sixteen, Josephine met and married her husband Ken, and had two sons. When the boys started school, she decided to go to college and eventually gained a place at Cambridge University. She was unable to take this up as it would have meant living away from home, but she went into teaching - and started to write her first full-length novel. She won the `Superwoman of Great Britain' Award, for which her family had secretly entered her, at the same time as her novel was accepted for publication.
