Joy Anderson was innocent, young, and trusting when she met Gabe Venture. An aspiring journalist with worlds to conquer, Gabe came to New Mexico to explore the natural wonders of Lost River Cave, with Joy acting as his guide. Surrounded by staggering beauty, they both surrendered to a passion too powerful to deny—and Joy gave herself freely to the most extraordinary man she had ever known. But Gabe was destined for great things, and so he left Joy with memories, a broken heart . . . and, months later, a cherished, if painful, reminder of their lost love: a daughter.
Seven years have passed, and Joy—now a respected professor—has put what once was behind her, though the memory will always remain alive in the light that shines in the eyes of her beautiful child.
Now Gabe has returned.
Fresh and alive with rich, bold emotion, Elizabeth Lowell's classic love story shines anew, proving once and for all that an already accomplished novel of poignancy and power can be remade into something truly remarkable.

New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Lowell has more than eighty titles published to date with over twenty-four million copies of her books in print. She lives in the Sierra Nevada Mountains with her husband, with whom she writes novels under a pseudonym. Her favorite activity is exploring the Western United States to find the landscapes that speak to her soul and inspire her writing.From AudioFile:
Laural Merlington's voice is perfect for the self-assured yet vulnerable Dr. Joy Smith-Anderson, who is running a research project at Lost River Cave in New Mexico. The action starts when Gabe Venture, an adventure journalist, turns up to do a story on the closing of the cave complex. They have a past. She wants nothing to do with the only man who ever physically excited her but left her to bear their child alone. Thinking she aborted the child, he now hates her. While this is not Lowell at her best, it's a moderately entertaining and sexy romance with fascinating details of cave exploration and formation. Merlington is effective on the whole, even though her male voices sound forced and 6-year-old Kati sounds silly. D.T.H. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
