9780006498223: Love in Another Town

Jake Cantrell is suave, charming and blessed with film-star looks. A brilliant and imaginative electrical engineer, Jake, however, is saddened by the failure of his marriage to his childhood sweetheart, Amy. Maggie Sorrett is bright, poised and elegant. An interior designer, she, too, has suffered a broken marriage, and is painfully out of touch with her two grown children. Kent, Connecticut is picturesque; it beckons to both Jake and Maggie. There they become involved with the local amateur dramatics group, and are introduced. They begin to meet, initially on business, then socially. The relationship blossoms, but ahead lie obstacles - the fifteen-year difference in their ages, Amy's sudden illness, her reluctance to divorce Jake, and Maggie's own inner turmoil. But together they overcome the odds and find the ultimate: love in another town.

From the Publisher:

As he approaches his 29th birthday, Jake Cantrell feels his life completely is stalled. He is estranged from his wife Amy, his childhood sweetheart, who has failed to grow up with him over the years.

Desperately seeking a divorce, wanting to put more distance between them, and needing to concentrate on his new business, Cantrell moves to a new town: Kent, Connecticut. An electrical contractor, with an outstanding reputation and an extraordinary talent for creating special lighting effects, Cantrell becomes involved with an amateur theatrical group in his spare time. At the first meeting of the group, Cantrell encounters Maggie Sorrell, a good looking, charming woman of 44. Sorrell, an interior designer, will be working with Cantrell on the sets of the play, The Crucible.

Sorrell herself recently moved from Chicago to Kent after her lawyer husband left her for a younger woman. Now divorced and painfully out of touch with her two grown children, she hopes to start life anew in Kent.

In the process of renovating an old farmhouse for a client, Sorrell hires Cantrell as the electrical contractor. Working together on a daily basis, watching the old farmhouse being transformed into a warm, enduring home, they fall in love. Ahead lie obstacles -- the fifteen years difference in their ages, Amy Cantrell's sudden illness, her reluctance to divorce Cantrell and Sorrell's own inner turmoil. But together they ultimately overcome the odds and find happiness in another town. Emotionally gripping and uplifting, Love in Another Town is a dramatic and inspiring page turner guaranteed to touch the reader on many levels.
