Even if I’d known I would lose Sunday McCormick Collins so
early, I would have married that beautiful woman. What we
shared is all I’ve ever wanted for my children and my
grandchildren. Love isn’t about the happy ending. It’s about
the happiness found each and every day you’re together. –
Patrick “Pop” Collins
Padraig Collins loves his bartending job at Pat’s Pub, the
Baltimore hangout owned by his equally beloved family. He’s
young, carefree, filled with starry-eyed hopes and dreams
for his future…which are irrevocably thrown off course when
patron Mia Curtis comes into the bar, visibly upset. When
she leaves in tears, Padraig follows. He hopes to give the
young woman comfort and assurance. What he gets in return is
a massive dose of reality.
Mia has a ticking time bomb in her head, an inoperable
tumor, with a diagnosis of only six months to live. As
Padraig lets her cry on his shoulder, listens to her
heartbreakingly detail the things she’ll never get to
experience, he’s forced to face some hard facts about the
way he’s lived his own life up to this point. Meandering
through each day as if youth means immortality, and he has
all the time in the world.
An evening of soul-searching leads to a life-changing
decision—Padraig will help Mia accomplish everything on her
bucket list. He won’t let her die with a single regret. But
that goal transforms into something far deeper when Padraig
falls in love with the courageous woman. His once endless
future shrinks to months instead of years, accompanied by a
crushing sense of desperation.
Until they realize life isn’t measured in time. It’s
measured in moments…
This story will hopefully widen your definition of a
traditional happy-ever-after. Not all of us get the luxury
of a lifetime…but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a
lifetime’s worth of love in the time we’re given.

Re: March Wind
I agree wholeheartedly, having been widowed far to young!
