This New Adult and College story takes place in the northwest Washington town of Evergreen, situated on the shore of Lake Geneva with views of the Olympic mountains and Puget Sound to the west and the Cascade mountains to the east.
Evergreen is populated by a variety of individuals, the first group of whom we meet in this story with a slightly old-fashioned bent. Jane is in the midst of recovering from two catastrophes: having to quit college following her mother's death, and the need to find a job that will pay her enough so she can return to college.Chet Barton is not someone she anticipates she would ever figure in her life. He is the younger son of one of the richest men in town and a bad boy, as evidenced by his prior behavior in town and at Whitman College, before he was asked to leave. Family means everything to Jane precisely because hers is so different from her friends'. Family has other meanings for Chet. How this young couple come to a deeper understanding of the linkages between blood and relationships is at the heart of this story that ends with an unexpected twist.

From the Author:

This is New Adult novel begins the ON GENEVA SHORES series set in the small suburban town of Evergreen, Washington. I've always believed that family secrets are the most interesting to plumb when attempting to understand a person, or, in the case of a novel, the characters that appear within its pages.Jane isn't privy to the key secret until she's grown, which is probably good, because I suspect she couldn't have dealt with it, much less understood it, had she been younger.Chet, too, doesn't learn of the secrets that link his family to Jane's until he's an adult, but his reaction is very different from Jane's. Do you suppose it reflects his gender or his troubled relationship with the man he considers his father?

From the Inside Flap:

Thesecharacters came to life for me when I began to delve into the complexitiescreated by the existence of sperm banks and the children created from their use.While these characters do not use those facilities, they are mistakenly linkedin ways similar to those experienced by the many thousands of such off-springthroughout the United States.
 
Haveyou ever read a diary or letters written by or to a relative? Did it containsecrets you never knew? How would you have reacted to similar news? Jane and Chet,too, must deal with damning information they never expected to discover.
 
Isit possible for this young couple to come to terms with these com-plicationsand move forward with their lives? Or will what they learned destroy the lovethey enjoyed?
 
BecauseI believe in giving back, half of the royalties received from the sale ofthis book are donated to the American Cancer Society.
