Secrets ruin lives, and lies protect those secrets…
Wanting to escape her life in New York City before starting medical school in the fall, Anna Dillon convinces her best friend Dante to travel with her to Thailand on a medical mission. While volunteering in a coastal village recently ravaged by a tsunami, Anna meets Jude Grayson. They share an instant attraction that leads to a brief, passionate affair. When she has to rush home for a family emergency, he promises to stay in touch.
But Jude never calls, and Anna tries desperately to forget him.
Five years pass, and Anna finally moves on with Dante after giving up hope that Jude will ever return—until they come face to face again in a chance encounter. Reeling, Anna discovers the life-altering secret of why Jude never contacted her—and why they can’t be together. But the passion that ignited between them on an exotic beach years ago never died, making it impossible to stay away from each other.
And Dante? Anna discovers that the friend she grew to love—and trust—has a secret of his own.

This book is something just about everyone should read. It’s the story of Anna and the choices she makes on her route of self discovery. She’s going through a rough time and just needed to get away from her mom, her dad and her life as a whole. So she goes to treat people in Thailand with her best friend, Dante.
While there, she is healing, or trying to, when she meets Jude. Jude is a theology student on the way to the seminary. Jude and Anna challenge each other and their beliefs in what their lives are supposed to be. They fall for each other but then Anna never hears from Jude when she goes back to the US.
5 years later, Anna sees Jude and all hell breaks loose in Anna’s life.
That’s all I’m saying because SO much happens you need to read it yourself.
Christine Brae is a full time career woman who thought she could write a book about her life and then run away as far as possible from it. She never imagined that her words would touch the hearts of so many women with the same story to tell. That’s what happened with her first book, The Light in the Wound (2013). Christine followed that title with His Wounded Light and then Insipid (2014). In This Life (Vesuvian Books) is her fourth book. The traditionally published title has already been optioned for Film/TV.
When not listening to the voices in her head or spending late nights at the office, Christine can be seen shopping for shoes and purses, running a half marathon or spending time with her husband and three children in Chicago.
