Kit Brennan has always been the most grounded of her
sisters. A Catholic school English teacher for seventeen
years and a constant giver, her decisions have been sound—
just not very satisfying. Her fortieth birthday is right
around the corner, causing Kit to consider some wilder
notions, like skipping right past the love and marriage to
raising a child all by herself.
A girls’ weekend away is just the reprieve Kit needs from
school, Mr. Wrongs, and life-changing decisions. It’s there
that she meets a man who’s dangerous; a man who challenges
who she thought she was, or rather should be. Kit wants to
indulge herself this once, but with one of her students in
crisis and the weight of her family’s burdens weighing
heavy on her heart, Kit isn’t sure if now is the time to
let her own desires take flight.
