Summary

Summary:

After Mary Margaret Kelly's father, an Air Force pilot, died when she was nine, Maggie's family moved from one city to the next. Her mother warned her to avoid risk at all cost. Forgoing the magic of first love with a high school boyfriend who was too wild to feel safe, Maggie sought out a predictable partner, a stable home, and a regular paycheck. When tragedy strikes her conventional suburban family, Maggie decides to face her fears. Her travels reconnect her with the thrill-seeking man she spent thirty years trying to forget. Is it ever possible to outrun fears and painful memories? -- adapted from back cover
A woman who longs to avoid risk at all cost learns that men who love danger are the most exciting. After a carefree childhood, Mary Margaret Kelly came of age in the shadow of grief. Her father, a dashing daredevil Air Force pilot, died when she was nine. Maggie saw her mother struggle to put their lives back together. As the family moved from one city to the next, her mother warned her to beware of daredevil men and avoid risk at all cost. Following her mother's advice, and forgoing the magic of first love with a high school boyfriend who was too wild to feel safe, Maggie instead sought out all the things her mother had lost--a predictable partner, a stable home, and a regular paycheck. She chose to marry a dependable, kind man who was a reliable husband and successful accountant. Together they had a son and found happiness in a conventional suburban life. Until tragedy struck again. Now on her own, feeling a sense of adventure for the first time, Maggie decides to face her fears, setting off on a whirlwind trip from San Francisco to Rome, Paris, and Monaco. But when her travels reconnect her with the very same irresistible, thrill-seeking man she's spent thirty years trying to forget, Maggie becomes terrified that rushing into love and sharing his life may very well end in disaster. But ultimately, while Maggie tries to outrun her fears and painful memories of her past, fate will surprise her in the most astounding of ways, as she walks the tightrope between danger and courage, and between wisdom and love.
