Can a dying man's last wish give birth to a second chance at love? 

Nolan Crawford has devoted his entire adult life to his father, country music legend Dale Drayton. From managing his career and finances, to supporting his stints in and out of rehab. Now, Nolan finds himself in the most challenging position yet -- dealing with the loss of his father to an aggressive form of cancer. In a meeting with their attorney, Nolan is shocked to learn that his famous father has made one last request -- to have his son and former daughter-in-law sprinkle his ashes in the Mediterranean waters off the island of Rhodes. Memories rush to the surface, transporting Nolan back to idyllic days spent on Greece's dazzling beaches with the only woman he ever truly loved. Nolan hasn't seen or spoken with his ex-wife, Mary Grace Marlowe, in twenty years. He has no idea she's living a quiet life in upstate New York, teaching interior design at prestigious Cornell (and conveniently engaged to the university's president, Les Covington). Will the news of Dale's death bring them back together? Or has the passage of time been unable to heal their collective wounds?

AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is a 3rd person narrative work in progress - and shifts perspective between the main characters. Please follow my profile and watch for updates. I am flying without a beta, so be aware that this is not a polished piece of fiction. My goal is to update every two weeks, yet with college football season in swing, I make no hard promises. Thanks for your patience.
