Only a few months ago, Gerry had everything he thought he needed from life. He was passionately in love with his college sweetheart after nearly twenty years of marriage, he had a bright, independent-minded daughter, and he had the surprising addition of a new child on the way. Then everything changed with stunning rapidity. With little explanation, his daughter ran away with her older boyfriend. And, only a month after giving birth to their son, his wife died suddenly. Now, Gerry needs to be everything to his infant child while he contends with two losses he can barely comprehend. And when a woman walks into his life as a friend and their relationship verges on something more, Gerry must redefine all that he knows about himself, about love, about loyalty, and about his dreams. As emotionally charged as the best of Nicholas Sparks but with an enhanced depth of character and prose, "When You Went Away" is a novel that readers will take to their hearts and recommend passionately.

Tears of sadness and joy go hand in hand in this immensely satisfying story. It's hard to believe that this is Baron's first work of fiction. Outstanding!" --Romantic Times Book Reviews

In the process he is forced to resolve his relationships with his teenage daughter, his sense of self, and what he wants in his life.
