Summary
A rookie paramedic pulls a young woman alive from her totaled car, a first rescue that begins a lifelong tangle of love and wreckage. Sheila Arsenault is a gorgeous enigma, streetwise and tough-talking, with haunted eyes, fierce desires, and a never-look-back determination. Peter Webster, as straight an arrow as they come, falls for her instantly and entirely. Soon Sheila and Peter are embroiled in an intense love affair, married, and parents to a baby daughter. Like the crash that brought them together, it all happened so fast
Summary
After his wife, Sheila, abandons him, paramedic Peter Webster is left to raise their daughter alone, until, 19 years later Sheila contacts him, dredging up years of buried questions and making him wonder why their marriage unraveled.
