Why did that word rank above the rest? Helen loved her family and understood they wanted her to have the real love they’d all found. It’s just that she’d found her someone special and learned to live without him. She’d been too young for the quirky, idealistic doctor-off to save the world-to notice. And, really, if she had it her way, he’d never know how she’d felt. Now, he was one of her best friends, a pen pal, losing him would be too much.Seeing him at their parents wedding, Helen realizes the horrible truth: she still loves Joseph…which wouldn’t be so bad if she wasn’t in the situation she was in.But she was. And her secret will change everything.

Will it destroy hope for a Hollywood happy ending too?
