It was a time of plenty—plenty of jobs, plenty of money, plenty of hope for all, and everything seemed right with the world. For Anna Maria Bellone, a vibrant college graduate from Long Island, it was also a time to begin her career with a prominent NYC insurance firm. It was not long before she met the captivating Andrew Moore, who quickly swept her into his life and his soul. They enjoyed everything their beautiful city had to offer—but the secrets he held close and the events of one fateful evening shook their relationship almost beyond repair.

To save her further misery, he was convinced that if he put half a country between them, his plan would be successful. Could their love overcome the circumstances that tried to separate them? Was it possible for a love founded in the shadows to blossom in the sunshine of happily ever after?
